A web application to manage the creation and publication of programs for religious services, like those of the weekly Sunday services held by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


This project is built using the Phoenix web framework built on top of Elixir.

  • Install dependencies with mix deps.get
  • Start up db with mix docker.db start
  • Create database with mix ecto.setup
  • Start Phoenix as server with mix phx.server or inside an IEx shell with iex -S mix phx.server

Project should be running at http://localhost:4000.


Online bulletins are all the rage now: they're more convenient, not to mention better for our health (no COVID, please) and the environment. Sharing a link to a read-only version of a Google Doc is kinda… well… sub-optimal. Let's make something that is both easy to use and really pretty to look at.


  • Web-first: I'll be skipping the PDF generation and focusing on having a nice, easy-to-read web version.
  • Flexible: I won't take too much structure into the programs this time.
  • Multi-account: we'll bake accounts into the project from the beginning.


  • Postgres
  • Elixir
  • Phoenix
  • LiveView
  • Tailwind
  • Alpine.js?

Dev Installation

Until I have a docker-compose file, the best way to get this running is to install Elixir on your host system, then install Docker. That should be everything you need to get started. Just follow the steps under Synopsis.

Be kind. This is a hobby project being run by a very busy college student.
