Over the past few days, I've been mulling the idea of creating some sort of crowdsourced website to collect data on hard to find products (outside of the tech industry).
Does anyone have any thoughts on a way to do this using Cloudron apps and self-hosted with WordPress integration if possible?
I'm looking to scan a website for changes (EX: Out of Stock, In Stock, etc). In addition, I'll build out a way for users to submit info on products spotted in the wild which will display on a map.
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Kind of like a marketplace or classified website? Yes, I am certain this can be done with Cloudron as a base. Like use Wordpress as a base, or write your own fully custom solution and deploy it as an app (which means that Cloudron will take care of e.g. database backups for you).
Or you split it over multiple apps, where you have a static website in surfer, and e.g. a go or rust api backend in a custom app.
The only limitation is that you are basically limited to a single host. You cannot scale your app over multiple servers, geolocate requests, or do blue-green deployments where you route certain users to a newer version of your code.
PS: to be fair, if you make your own proxy app and let it route between two other apps, you could kind of do a blue-green even on cloudron.
@fbartels Yeah, I was going to use WordPress as the base app to tie everything together. I'm not a programmer, so kinda trying to piece things together -- even if needing the use Airbase or some sort of other app. I'm not trying to make a Marketplace or Classified website, but trying to consolidate real-time data (user submitted, or from crawling a website).
What is the blue-green?
even if needing the use Airbase
think you mean:-
Airtable: App Reviews, Features, Pricing & Download | AlternativeTo
@hillside502 Yes, that is what I meant... I need more Coffee. Also as far as Blue-Green, I'm still thinking that out based on what I am using to create the site.
