Thinking of rewriting to leverage serverless functions/lambdas for the API to free up my resources, and move it to using a document DB rather than Postgres. Early stages but likely to happen.

The API is currently on its second iteration, looking like a third to get this all working. Not sure if I’ll opt for a total rewrite from the Go codebase, but probably not, depending where I deploy. Currently working out where things would be best hosted, mostly for latency.

Putting together a fun org doc with my thoughts :p So far a few things I’ve picked out include DynamoDB, CouchDB, Vercel Functions / Edge Functions, and AWS Lambda. Still looking around at options.
