Elixir Inspecting Big Structs and Lists

IO inspects limits your data by default in 50, so 50 Map keys and values, or 50 List items, etc. Sometimes you have a larger data, so you can play with this number by setting an option to the IO.inspect/2 function, or you can set it to :infinity. Use :infinity with moderation of course:

big_map = 1..100 |> Enum.map(&{ &1, "value #{&1}"}) |> Enum.into(%{})
IO.inspect(big_map)
IO.inspect(big_map, limit: 100)
IO.inspect(big_map, limit: :infinity)
