Re: Funding for Hosting On-Line SPDX Tools

I actually tried to implement this in a serverless environment (it was my first choice), but there is persistent state required for some of the components.  As Alexios points out – a good future project.

 

The PostgreSQL is necessary as a DB backend.  It also uses Redis – but this doesn’t seem to add too much complexity.  We have some projects underway to reduce the dependency on Java – it would be great to make this all python sometime in the future.

 

BTW – Anyone interested in reviewing and contributing can review the issues listed here: https://github.com/spdx/spdx-online-tools/issues/199

Rewriting this to a simpler setup is definitely a valid idea for a future Community Bridge / GSoC project. 😉

Is the complexity really needed?

Can it be moved to a serverless solution? E.g. GitHub pages for the static content + lambdas for backend?
