• Introduction to Elasticlunr

    2 years ago

    Elasticlunr is a small, full-text search library for use in the Elixir environment. The library is built for web applications that do not require the deployment complexities of popular search engines while taking advantage of the Beam capabilities. Imagine how much is gained when the search functionality of your application resides in the same environment (Beam VM) as your business logic; search resolves faster, the number of services (Elasticsearch, Solr, and so on) to monitor reduces.

    In this post, we will look at Elixir data types: integer, float, booleans, string, lists, maps, tuples... I will try to make this article concise as possible.. This post expects that you fiddle with the language by writing code to try out any of the given examples. Typing out these examples yourself helps improve memory muscles.

Remember that Elixir upholds the Immutability mantra of a functional language meaning that modifications made on a value return another copy of the value with the modifications without modifying the actual value in place

    Elixir is a dynamic, functional language for building scalable and maintainable applications.

The Elixir programming language wraps functional programming with an immutable state and an actor-based approach to concurrency in a tidy, modern syntax.

    I learnt most of my software development skills by reading resourceful articles from tech websites, the blog posts by fellow community members. Looking at authors whose articles have been of help to my career, I have decided to share my experience as a developer, and a tech lead, into a blog. I believe by doing this I will be able to give readers insights into my journey as a software developer.
