Elixir: You can pipe into a case statement

The pipe operator |> in Elixir is very powerful.

It passes the result of the left side in as the first parameter of the right.

They even work with case statements:

1 
|> case do 
     {:ok, body} -> body
     {:error, reason} -> {:error, reason}
     x -> x 
end
