Let's Build An Instagram Clone With The PETAL(Phoenix, Elixir, TailwindCSS, AlpineJS, LiveView) Stack [PART 5]

In part 4 we added the profile posts section and post page, in this part, we will work on the show-post page. You can catch up with the Instagram Clone GitHub Repo.

Show-Post Page

Let's start by adding our base template for our show page, open lib/instagram_clone_web/live/post_live/show.html.leex and add the following:

<section class="flex">
  <!-- Post Image section -->
  <%= img_tag @post.photo_url,
          class: "w-3/5 object-contain h-full" %>
  <!-- End Post Image section -->

  <div class="w-2/5 border-2 h-full">
    <div class="flex p-4 items-center border-b-2">
      <!-- Post header section -->
      <%= live_redirect to: Routes.user_profile_path(@socket, :index, @post.user.username) do %>
        <%= img_tag @post.user.avatar_url, class: "w-8 h-8 rounded-full object-cover object-center" %>
      <% end %>
      <div class="ml-3">
        <%= live_redirect @post.user.username,
          to: Routes.user_profile_path(@socket, :index, @post.user.username),
          class: "truncate font-bold text-sm text-gray-500 hover:underline" %>
      </div>
      <!-- End post header section -->
    </div>

    <div class="no-scrollbar h-96 overflow-y-scroll p-4 flex flex-col">
      <%= if @post.description do %>
        <!-- Description section -->
        <div class="flex mt-2">
          <%= live_redirect to: Routes.user_profile_path(@socket, :index, @post.user.username) do %>
            <%= img_tag Avatar.get_thumb(@post.user.avatar_url), class: "w-8 h-8 rounded-full object-cover object-center" %>
          <% end %>

          <div class="px-4 w-11/12">
            <%= live_redirect @post.user.username,
            to: Routes.user_profile_path(@socket, :index, @post.user.username),
            class: "font-bold text-sm text-gray-500 hover:underline" %>
            <span class="text-sm text-gray-700">
              <p class="inline"><%= @post.description %></p></span>
            </span>

            </div>

Open assets/css/app.scss and add the following styles to the bottom of the file to not show the scrollbar on the comments section of the page:

/* Chrome, Safari and Opera */
.no-scrollbar::-webkit-scrollbar {
  display: none;
}

.no-scrollbar {
  -ms-overflow-style: none;  /* IE and Edge */
  scrollbar-width: none;  /* Firefox */

Likes

Let's create the likes context, in our terminal:

$ mix phx.gen.context Likes Like likes user_id:references:users liked_id:integer

Inside the migration that was generated:

defmodule InstagramClone.Repo.Migrations.CreateLikes do
  use Ecto.Migration

  def change do
    create table(:likes) do
      add :liked_id, :integer
      add :user_id, references(:users, on_delete: :nothing)

      timestamps()
    end

    create index(:likes, [:user_id, :liked_id])
  end
end

Back in our terminal: $ mix ecto.migrate

  schema "posts_likes" do
    field :liked_id, :integer

Add the likes relationship to the post schema, open lib/instagram_clone/posts/post.ex:


...

has_many :likes, InstagramClone.Likes.Like, foreign_key: :liked_id

Add the likes relationship to the user schema, open lib/instagram_clone/accounts/user.ex:

Let's create a component to handle likes, under lib/instagram_clone_web/live/post_live add a file named like_component.ex and add the following:

Inside lib/instagram_clone_web/live/post_live/show.html.leex on line 50, replace the div containing the heart icon with the following:

Inside lib/instagram_clone_web/live/post_live/show.ex we need to handle the message sent from the component to update the likes count:

...

  alias InstagramCloneWeb.PostLive.LikeComponent

  @impl true

    {:noreply, 
      socket

  end
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Open lib/instagram_clone/posts.ex and let's update get_post!() and get_post_by_url() functions to preload the user that belongs_to and the likes:


...
  def get_post!(id) do
    Repo.get!(Post, id)
    |> Repo.preload([:user, :likes])
  end

  def get_post_by_url!(id) do
    Repo.get_by!(Post, url_id: id)
    |> Repo.preload([:user, :likes])
  end

...

Post Comments

Let's create a comments context for comments, in our terminal type in the following command:

$ mix phx.gen.context Comments Comment comments post_id:references:posts user_id:references:users body:text total_likes:integer

Inside the migration that was generated:
