Poolboy is a generic pooling library for Erlang (ergo Elixir). Since it is originally made for Erlang, you wouldn’t find a great set of documentation around how to use it on Elixir apps, and especially with Phoenix apps. If you know your way around Erlang, you can follow the wonderful…

It all started a month ago, the first time I saw them. They were all so small, so fluffy and so cute. I even joked about how I would love to shelter and feed them inside my home. Now that I think about it, it all seems so naïve. …
