What is Phoenix Framework?
Phoenix is a framework for building HTML5 apps, API backends and distributed systems. Written in Elixir, you get beautiful syntax, productive tooling and a fast runtime.
Peace-of-mind from prototype to production
Build rich, interactive web applications quickly, with LESS code and fewer moving parts. Join our growing community of developers using Phoenix to craft APIs, HTML5 apps and more, for fun or at scale.
Interact with users and know who is connected right now, across one or dozens of nodes, by using our built-in Channels and Presence technologies. Or try LiveView for a refreshing new way to develop real-time apps without the client-side complexities.
MVC without the Mess
At its core, Phoenix is a rock-solid web framework that improves the tried and true Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture with a fresh set of functional ideas. Phoenix puts the focus on your business domain, bringing you immediate productivity and long-term code maintainability.
Versatility at your fingertips
Forget about complex messaging systems or about 3rd party tools to manage layers of cache. Phoenix uses the Erlang VM capabilities to implement its real time system and to scale out-of-the-box. This reduces operational complexity and decreases developers cognitive load.
Phoenix accompanies you and your team from development to production. It ships with built-in instrumentation and a live dashboard that gives you insight into the Erlang VM ability to handle millions of connections alongside Elixir’s tooling for building robust systems.
