We’re in the dog days of summer here in the US. 🐶 Which basically means when we’re not thinking about, researching, or coding up LiveViews, we’re scurrying for a cool lake or shady hammock to flop in.
Updates for Phoenix 1.5.4, LiveView 0.14.4, and Tailwind 1.7
We’ve been tracking the changes in Phoenix, LiveView, and Tailwind CSS. The latest minor versions include bug fixes and enhancements. So this week we updated the course code bundle for our Phoenix LiveView course to use Phoenix 1.5.4 (from 1.5.3), LiveView 0.14.4 (from 0.13.3) and Tailwind 1.7 (from 1.2).
Now don’t worry: these updates didn’t impact any of the code we wrote in the videos or any of the exercises. All of that code is still 100% accurate with no changes. 👍 So why did we update the code? Well, mainly just to keep everything up-to-date and so we can take advantage of the new enhancements in future videos.
If you’ve already downloaded the code bundle and want to update a specific branch (totally optional), you can pull the changes from our remote repo. For example, to get the code for today’s new video on JS interop, you’ll need to run:
git checkout 14-infinite-scroll-begin git pull origin 14-infinite-scroll-begin
The changes include updated mix.exs and assets/package.json files with updated dependency versions. Then, to fetch the new versions, run:
mix deps.get npm install --prefix assets
Or, if you don’t mind having your database reset, you can simply run:
If you already own this course, you’ll find this new video with exercises in your account today.
That’s it? Isn’t there more?
So it might surprise you that next video is going to be about LiveComponents. 😳 That probably wasn’t exactly what you were expecting to hear, was it?
And after the introduction to components in the next video, you’re going to want more examples of LiveComponents, too.
So yes, there is SO MUCH MORE!
In our next update, we’ll release our 15th LiveView example in the free course and reveal where we’re going from here. 🚀
