I ran into a little trouble hooking up websockets when playing with an
ember-cli front end app and a
phoenix backend server recently. I
thought I'd document what I did to get them working for others trying this out.
I make no claims that this is the best way to do things but it's working for
me so far. If you know a better way please let me know in the comments or by
OTP Supervisors can restart their children in four different ways and to better understand which one to use in a given scenario I wanted to summarise a few patterns I've seen.

I read a great post by Graeme Mathieson that walks through how he sets up a new Rails 4.2 project from scratch. At the bottom of the post he mentions it takes him half an hour or so. I've been meaning to play with Rails Application Templates and figured this would be a good opportunity to see what they can do and if they can cut down this boilerplate time.
