looveh, I have a client who's near release

mj_langford18:04:18

@looveh The lambda part was fine, the api gateway was infuriating

mj_langford18:04:26

You do need keepalives if you use clj instead of cljs. I just logged on to learn more about using node libraries with cljs to see if I'd like that better now that AWS Api gateway and swagger and I are all friends

mj_langford18:04:43

If you're just writing something like Alexa backends, you'll be fine

mj_langford18:04:17

Use the tools available. Beware one of the examples in the api gateway lib is a little stale, and it sometimes overly wraps stuff a bit.

mj_langford18:04:37

Get your local environment talking directly to DDB if you use that though. The local DDB server is useless

mj_langford: it is good for testing šŸ™‚

mj_langford00:04:31

We found it different enough, it was not. Caused more work than just making a separate db for testing and using that

looveh09:05:38

Good to know!

There is an excellent js implemetation of ddb called dynalite

ericfode16:05:19

I have found it makes local dynamo palatable

@looveh we have few products in production since september on top of cljs-lambda. Iā€™m playing with lambada for internal data transformation tasks.

rarous20:04:21

I had some issues to make it run in AWS, cljs-lambda deployment story is much smoother. Lambada is much simpler for development.
