Hi! I’ve recently got into the hobby of making little Twitch chatbots / discord bots for some friends (not for large scale distribution), so was disappointed to find that asleep projects take a while to wake up and respond, and I have only a maximum of 5 that can be online at all times.
I was initially looking at ways to host my own nodejs things elsewhere, but as I’m still quite new to all this, I absolutely cannot handle all the complexity that comes with setting up hosting and FTP and SSH and all these other things I only have a very base understanding of, and honestly? I love glitch, I don’t want to leave this environment if I don’t have to. But I just had an idea to potentially solve that issue-
As these chatbots don’t need to be awake unless the relevant channels are live- can I therefore have one always-awake project which checks if any of the streamers using my chatbots are live, and then have it ping the relevant chatbot project every 4 minutes to keep it awake for the duration of the livestream?
A) Would that work well enough, and without issue?
B) Is this considered to be “gaming” Glitch’s limits or something, or is this how the system is intended to be used?
