I agree, Ecto is a great.

Ive always appreciated ORMs, but disliked how people tend to forget about the database behind them.

Ecto gives you a lot of power and flexibility, and its very easy to remember there is SQL behind there.

Compose-able queries are awesome.

Schemaless queries are awesome.

Not tying your "model" or "context" directly to a table or letting it be a portion of a table is awesome.

Backing "validations" with database constraints is awesome.

That Ecto team kills it.
