I spent last night setting up a small cloud server environment for running TIPS on beause that’s what I do. Right now it’s an Amazon EC2 instance backed by DynamoDB, which is looking increasingly like a Mongo fork with less functionality. But hey, $1 /mo during development. Long term I’ll probably add a couple of front end web servers behind a load balancer with images up behind Cloudfront, just to do it.
I’m going to update the package post to include dynamodb-mapper, which got me up and running in a few minutes. Handy!
Today if I get time I’m going to look into the image generation and sourcing / scraping. Should be a hoot!
