I’ve been using Elixir for a few weeks now, sometimes forcing it to play nice with Mongodb/Meteor , which it doesn’t really want to do. Sometimes with Posgres (which it loves). Sometimes just plain ole’ Elixir with no persistance.
It is realllllly fun!
I have been watching Elixir for almost 2 years now, and debating if it’s mature enough for me to invest in.
Obviously Erlang is super-mature, and Elixir is quite stable, but it’s a question of “is the community mature enough yet?”
