Network Behaviors with Glitch Servers and Python
It's the weekend and I decided to take a break from work to have some fun with network behaviors, learn me some python, and try out glitch.
Glitch is a system that lets you program server apps online and instantly have a running server to try them out on.
The projects are public by default, so you can take a glitch, 'remix' it, and make it your own.
I setup up a basic project to parse the GameSalad send table to network behavior.
What's awesome is Glitch's free tier allow for 4,000 request per hour, which is perfect for development or an app without too much traffic.
You can pay glitch $10/month to increase the limits on 5 of your projects, so as your project grows, you have a quick option to scale.
I'm still trying to figure out how databases work, but in theory you could have glitch access a third party cloud database and APIs like AirTable or Firebase with libraries like
The other good thing is that because glitches are public by default, we can all help each other out just by sharing links and trying stuff live! They have an .env file mechanism to set up private environment variables to project API keys and you can make glitch projects run in private, so your code is not exposed when you're live.
Anyway, I hope this helps people out! I'm gonna be heads down in other code early next week, so I might be slow to get back to your questions, hopefully you can help each other out!
