How we got to LiveView is a long read from Chris McCord, the creator of the Phoenix web framework for Elixir. It covers his experience with Ruby on Rails, what issues it had, how he fixed it in Phoenix, and then covers how LiveView is a continuation of these ideas.

Yes, I’m telling a lot here about Elixir, and I know that nobody cares. Still, I hope one day when you start a highly-concurrent and soft-realtime project with enough freedom to choose the tech stack, you may remember all my stories about Elixir, and give it a try. It’s a relatively young language, but it is built on a very solid foundation and many great ideas.
