Elixir Pattern Matching in Anonymous Funs

filter_zed_by = "1"
list = [
  %{"a" => "1", "b" => "2"},
  %{"a" => "1", "b" => "5"},
  %{"a" => "2", "b" => "5"},
  %{"z" => "1", "x" => "2"}
]
Enum.filter list, fn
  %{"z" => ^filter_zed_by} -> true
  _ -> false
end

# => [%{"z" => "1", "x" => "2"}]
  • case in a fun is usually redundant
  • if is even worse
  • keep it simple
