Decision Log

Adopt Elixir PETAL technology stack


The PETAL stack is a popular combination of frameworks and libraries that have proven to be very powerful and flexible. It consists of:

  • Phoenix: Leading web framework for Elixir.
  • Elixir: Elixir server-side rendering code.
  • Tailwind: CSS framework to mark up HTML with semantic classes.
  • Alpine: Minimal framework for composing JS behaviours in markup.
  • Liveview: Real-time UX with server-rendered HTML.
