So I am interested in writing a program to read a file I write, with
different reminder info in it, and then have it send emails to my
account with the proper message on the proper days as reminders for me.
Ruby’s one of my favorite languages so I thought I’d code it in Ruby.
At first thought it seems I would like this software to run all the
time, so a web app would make most sense.
Then I thought I could probably get away with having it run in the
background, and have it start running on startup. The webapp version,
seems like the better approach, though I’d like to avoid paying much of
anything for the hosting. My bandwidth usage would be TINY, so perhaps
something that charges by the bandwidth would be best option for this?
An ideas on what would be some good ideas for a little app like this?
Ruby-world specific libraries, or Rails libraries etc… Maybe Rails
isn’t even the right approach, considering how simple the webapp is;
it’s really just a extremely simple service; its just a glorified spam
bot (for myself)
All ideas are welcome.
Thanks for the help,
