Thanks, Francisco!

Not sure about the dates but could it be GitHub actions weren't available by the time you coded DiffAlert?

That's true: GitHub Actions weren't around when I worked on DiffAlert. I bet there was another solution out there at the time that would have been less code and infrastructure than a Rails app though. I wonder if I could have pointed GitHub webhooks at Zapier or another similar service.

Anyway, both things are nice and I can be sure you learnt something real good while doing DiffAlert, didn't you?

Agreed! Yes, I had a blast building DiffAlert, and I learned a whole bunch in the process.
