10 Amazing open source Elixir/Phoenix Apps

A comprehensive list of 10 awesome applications built with Elixir/Phoenix web framework.

Ashish Singh


I have come across some lists on open source Elixir/Phoenix application but most of the times those lists contain libraries built for Elixir. I think that’s not a very good fit for the list I am trying to curate here. In this list you’ll only find applications built with latest version of Elixir/Phoenix we application.

If you think you have any suggestions regarding this list I highly encourage you to comment in the comments section and I’d look into it. Additionally I have a spot for that.

So here we go!!!

All the application listed below are applications you can download and start playing with. They all are built using Elixir/Phoenix framework.

#. Aviacommerce

An open-source e-commerce platform in elixir. This project should be used if you want to start your own e-commerce store. Admin panel and store front are the 2 main offerings in the platform. Codebase can be found here.

Docs for the platform can be found here. ElixirForum discussion thread.

1. Changelog

This is the CMS behind changelog.com. It’s an Elixir application built on the Phoenix web framework, PostgreSQL, and many other great open source efforts.

If you’re building a web application with Phoenix (or aspire to), this is a great place to poke around and see what one looks like when it’s all wired together. It’s not perfect by any means, but it works. And that’s something. We’ve also been told that it is ridiculously fast.
