Share your Always On repls
Just announced Always On! From the blog:
Always On repls can be pretty useful for a variety of programs and unlock many long-requested features. The most obvious and commonly requested is for web servers. If you're tired of waiting for your webserver to wake up every time you visit, Always On is a great way to fix that. But Always On isn't just for web repls, regular old repls work too! If you have a cron job you'd like to run on a schedule, Always On makes it super easy. Discord bots, Slack bots, and other chat bots with a persistent outbound connection are another great use for Always On. And if you have a workload that's taking a long time (like say scraping a site), you can Always On the repl and go one with your life.
I'm curious what other use-cases have people found for it? Share your repls below and tell us how you're using it.
When I turn on always-on, then I can't turn it off. When I do, it later automatically turns it back on or has a error
Idk, says I already have 5 and that I've reached max, but idk what 5 repls it thinks are always on :sad:
I have a few always-on repls
One that scrapes the SEC website looking for a certain type of form.
The other scrapes yahoo finance for various SPAC merger articles.
These forms/articles usually come out at like 3-5 AM pst so it's useful having them going 24/7.
