This week in Elixir

Simple Req Cookie Jar
Carlo presents a simple Req cookie jar plugin, which can be used when automating or scraping websites that implement cookie based sessions.

Elixir in Action, Third Edition đź’ś
This is the book to read, when you want to deepen your understanding of Elixir. I remember thoroughly enjoying the first edition years ago!

Fix Your Flaky Faker Tests
If you use Faker in LiveView tests, some HTML special characters can cause tests to fail randomly. John shows us how to fix it with 1 line of config.

Shell Scripting with Elixir
When simple bash scripts start to become unwieldy, you may consider reaching out for something “higher” level, like Ruby or Python. Michał is reaching out for Elixir.

That's it for this round, have a great day!

Questions & Answers

Can I submit things I made to be included in the next issue?

Yes! Simply post them to ElixirStatus and you can be sure that they land on my radar.

Is my email address safe with you?

Yes. I'd like to consider myself a trustworthy individual, but then who doesn't?

I am, however, an active member of the open-source Elixir community and the maintainer of Credo and ElixirStatus. I will NOT ruin my reputation by selling your data to a third party.

Why do you require me to confirm my email address?

I just believe that requiring double opt-in to subscribe to any email-based system is a win for both parties: You are safe from unintentionally subscribing and I can be confident that you actually own the email address and want to receive the newsletter I send you :)
