Announcing Teensy: A little bitty ruby serverless framework

twitter logo github logo Originally published at scottw.com on ・1 min read

I was playing around with FaaStRuby when it dawned on me that everything needed to build my own serverless ruby framework was right in front me (Heroku + Sinatra).

Then, all I remember seeing is dollar signs and code flying across my terminal. On my second git push to Heroku, Teensy was born.

I am only semi-joking. Most of what you would do ‘serverless’ could easily be accomplished with this code.

If I am really missing the mark on some thing, please let me know.

I'm not seeing a framework, just a hello world Sinatra app?

 

Sorry, Teensy was originally a bit of joke. I was trying to highlight that for most use cases, you really do not need anything crazy complicated (like AWS Lambda).

Having said that, I do think there is something to having a very easy to roll something like this out. I have been experimenting with Roda and built a couple of quick services:

github.com/scottwater/jekyll_rest
github.com/scottwater/draculous

Is serveless Ruby something you are actively considering? I would love to hear what you are looking for in a platform/service/etc?

Thanks,
Scott
