Phoenix is a beautiful web framework - it’s concise, comes with just enough of the tools you want to help you be productive yet not restrictive, and best of all, it comes with LiveView.
Elixir is a glorious programming language. It’s built on the strong and stable core of Erlangs BEAM runtime to be scalable right out of the box, it has an easy-to-understand messaging system, it’s fast, has a beautiful syntax, and metaprogramming provides magic to your fingertips. It’s easily my favourite programming language.
I’m an avid Indiehacker, I build side-projects all the time and I absolutely love doing it - there really is nothing quite like a launch day, watching all that work bear fruit (successful or otherwise).
But building SaaS products, software and other online offerings involves a lot of work. Sure you could opt for no-code solutions, which are incredible these days, but they lack the fine-tuning you can provide with your own honed, coding skills.
Elixir is my stack of choice if I need a website that can easily talk to a database, or if I want to scaffold something with a real-time user-experience. It’s my favourite language, and it’s picking up so much traction - but it’s still young, sometimes you won't easily find the resources for...
That resource is right here.
I’m writing this book because whilst the community and documentation of Phoenix LiveView and Elixir are stellar, I still had to figure out so much of it by myself to solve common problems and implement features other languages have documented a hundred times over online.
I've written the book I wish I had in my hands when I started using Phoenix LiveView.
Get a look at all of the content covered in the book. Everything you need to know is inside.
“LiveView Cookbook” is comprised of 65 tightly edited, code-example ridden pages designed to teach you everything you need to know about creating, launching and maintaining beautiful LiveView projects.
Designed for beginners and experienced developers alike.

Indiehackers & Programming Entrepreneurs looking to develop or start a new SaaS or digital product
Developers looking to get into the BEAM world - this book does not cover Elixir fundamentals and expects some semblance of Elixir and Phoenix familiarit but is a good jumping off point to see how easy building features in LiveView is
Curious polyglots looking to see what all the fuss is about with Elixir and LiveView
Inspired engineers looking to leverage BEAM to create their dream business with ease
Anyone that has ever tried to scour the internet for an in-depth LiveView testing tutorial
