Phoenix is a web development framework written in the functional programming language Elixir. Phoenix uses a server-side model-view-controller (MVC) pattern.[2] Based on the Plug library, and ultimately the Cowboy Erlang framework, it was developed to provide highly performant and scalable web applications. In addition to the request/response functionality provided by the underlying Cowboy server,[3] Phoenix provides soft realtime communication to external clients through WebSockets or long polling using its language agnostic channels feature.[4] Two of the most important features in Phoenix are LiveView and HEEx.
