is a cool GitHub project that helps you create a simple website that runs on Clojure, Noir
web framework, and Heroku.
Heroku takes a time-based approach to its services and billing. The idea
is that you pay for how many hours each dyno that you use has run in a
given month, and every free account has 750 free dyno hours. If I only
run one dyno all month, I don’t have to pay anything at all. And even if
an app that I use was to get slashdotted or something similar that
would generate massive amounts of traffic, all I’d have to do is run a
command or two to scale things up. I could add a dyno or two and only
run them for as long as the traffic was too hard for a single dyno to
handle the traffic, then I could scale it back down and I’d hardly have
to pay anything at all unless I used those dynos for quite a while. You
only pay for what you use, and you aren’t obligated to use anything more
than what you need/want! --
