Try Clojure on Heroku

  • submit to reddit
Try Clojure is a cool GitHub project that helps you create a simple website that runs on Clojure, Noir web framework, and Heroku.  Anthony Grimes did a nice write up that explains the benefits he found out about Heroku while working with Try Clojure:

Heroku takes a time-based approach to its services and billing. The idea is that you pay for how many hours each dyno that you use has run in a given month, and every free account has 750 free dyno hours. If I only run one dyno all month, I don’t have to pay anything at all. And even if an app that I use was to get slashdotted or something similar that would generate massive amounts of traffic, all I’d have to do is run a command or two to scale things up. I could add a dyno or two and only run them for as long as the traffic was too hard for a single dyno to handle the traffic, then I could scale it back down and I’d hardly have to pay anything at all unless I used those dynos for quite a while. You only pay for what you use, and you aren’t obligated to use anything more than what you need/want!  --Anthony Grimes

Anthony also had a chance to work with Phil Hagelburg, a fellow "Clojurian" who was just hired by Heroku, thanks to a twitter conversation.  Read the blog to learn about the entire experience he had with Try Clojure and Heroku.

This is awesome! One question.. How do you prevent people from making malicious API calls?
