Wrapping Up: Get Started with Repo

Review what we've learned so far about the Repo module.

We'll cover the following

We have completed the first stop of our tour of Ecto. We looked at Ecto from a high level, set up a sample application, and learned about the repository pattern and how it’s implemented in Ecto. We dove into the Repo module and started running a few basic CRUD operations. We’re well on our way.

What we’ve learned

  • Repo is powerful, but it’s a blunt instrument.
  • Ecto has various other tools available to help us with our work.
  • We noticed that running queries with raw SQL was somewhat clumsy. Ecto has a better option.
