@paulrobertlloyd I also read about your progress with it in your weeknotes and was thinking this would be a perfect use case for functions as a service. One could use Netlify to implement that. You would not need an express server then I think…

@ka Netlify Lambda functions are certainly on my radar, although when I looked into them I got confused. Thought best to start simple and adapt later once I better understood how the overall service should work. Baby steps!

@paulrobertlloyd I think Netlify Functions are a great way to play around with it because they give you the ability to play around with it locally and they give you free deployment and hosting for personal usage… pretty dope.

@ka Contributions gladly welcomed! I’m really new to all this – somewhat surprised to have gotten this far, to be honest – and expect there’s a lot more to be done around dealing with errors and exceptions. It’d be nice to get different perspective on architecture choices, too.
