As the popularity of Elixir and Phoenix continues to grow, we find ourselves spinning up more and more Phoenix apps for our clients and side projects. At Carbon Five, we have a pretty good consensus on our favorite practices and tools. With each new app, we find ourselves repeating the same steps to bring in many of the same resources and processes.
We created Razor, an opinionated app generator, to save ourselves this time and trouble. Razor isn’t the only one out there, but it captures our common needs and preferences at Carbon Five pretty comprehensively. It also provides a great platform for discussion; we hope to watch Razor evolve as the Elixir ecosystem grows and we continue to learn.
