Recently I met with Elixir and became interesting, what are the prospects, whether to study it as the primary language or is it just one more language which will be forgotten in 10 years?

Language for hipsters.
Comes a Chav with his startup and says I have a great idea, let's gash ?
And what will cut ?
well here is telling ruby, he's so cute but retarded.
OO .. so here is the elixir, he too ruby-like, but not the brake.

And shorter starts development for the elixir's web site on the elixir.
In fact, the product is niche, because it is built on Erlang. And when you ask the question, why elixir - Yes to the same as erlang, only with more possibilities to shoot yourself in the foot, but large and expressive means of the language.
And in fact that erlang that Elixir compiles to BEAM code for the erlang virtual machine. Thus the whole thing is interchangeable, and libraries for the elixir can be used to erlang and Vice versa.

In fact if people are using the elixir for the web, be sure with your framework Phoenix. It is such a framework, where a lot of the defaults, and just shows how to do it, but that was the explanation as to-why, it is necessary to climb in source codes, there are a lot of "magic", which is hidden by the framework.

For those familiar with Erlang and uses it every day, Elixir must have.
For those who came, and not familiar with Earl, Elixir it's such a quick language-a framework that allows anyhow-and-in-production. Hardly people understand all architectural limitations, and how is it inside under the hood.

the prospects are very vague, the language is much more niche than some rust or go.
these technologies study, or specifically for the project, or if very much want, without orientation to the mass market.

No, because that really took off in the modern realities , language must stand a big company in the style of google, ms, facebook, apple.

The language is really interesting and easy. There is a Russian documentation in elixir school and a sufficient number of libraries. There is a Russian community in the telegram @proelixir There are courses of elixir and a large number of books in several languages. The language evolves, though not as fast, but quality may.
Actively using it over the hill, there to find a job is not difficult. We have enough problematic boyfriend. But I would say that the Juno only take office virtually anywhere, so you must either be lucky with our location, you will need to promote it at the current place of work.
I pure elixir wrote parsers, multi-threading helps out very much.
Consider elixir without phoenix doesn't make sense. Phoenix makes sense to consider only as a very quick micro service. As an option for websockets. Could shoot LiveView but before that you have to live. In most companies at the moment in Russia prefer to go instead of elixir.
In the compartment for 10 years, he will only develop by simply in Russia it is still not really noticed.
As the primary language, perhaps, but only where already running erlang. Therefore it is better to slowly learn how incremental and tie it there, where to go isn't screwed)
Thinking change very much after a couple months of working with him will look at other languages is different, but certainly not worse!
