On the past few friday evenings I started to write a side-project to get going with server and client development using Go. The result is the CLI Notes project for managing text notes from the command line. All code for hosting the API server and building the needed client application is available at GitHub using the GPL license.
What is CLI Notes ?
I always felt the need to create a simple tool to quickly write and store text notes from the command line:
cn application sends your notes to the API server, so please make sure not to post any sensitive information unless you are hosting the server for yourself! But of course you are welcome to test-drive my running service at clinot.es …
Of course the complete sources for running the API server using Heroku is online at GitHub. There are two repositories available, one for the backend and one for the command line application
Feel free to add some features, encryption for example ;)
AWS Lambda functions together with an Amazon Kinesis Stream offer a great way to process continuous information. I created an example project called Serverless Analytics to demonstrate this. You can use this as the starting point to create your very own Google Analytics clone and run it serverless and hopefully maintenance-free on Amazon.617 words, posted on August 23
Since a few days, Amazon provides a native way to enable Auto Scaling for DynamoDB tables! Luckily the settings can be configured using CloudFormation templates, and so I wrote a plugin for serverless to easily configure Auto Scaling without having to write the whole CloudFormation configuration.154 words, posted on July 19
When you use a serverless environment for your service (and you should!), chances are high you might be using the Serverless framework and may end up in a situation like me with the need to process the AWS CloudFormation Stack Output after deploying the service.268 words, posted on July 1
