@ksan Thanks for the report, your help has been legendary.

 

@gremlininteractive I'll get you set up today.  Glad to have you.

 

I also have my other job today (dad) so I'll be on and off today, but getting really excited about the push component.

 

Have a great weekend.

 

Thanks again!

This is quite astonishing! Great job develephant, and I really do mean it. Even with coronium being in alpha 2 stage, all these possibilities are amazing. Please do keep it up! :)

Indeed! For alpha 2 I've expected just to see some small list of features being improved, and possibly some documentation. This really amazed me. GJ again.

Many thanks.  It's been a fun/stressful/learning adventure so far.

 

I really hope it can mature to the point of being a helpful stack.

 

Cheers.

Well, I know I contributed to the stressful part so I'm glad other testers made it fun while you got the learning part taken care of!


On that note, how can we send you a token of appreciation for the good work you're doing and your enthusiasm? I'd like to buy you a few beverages of your choice. Please pm me a PayPal address when you get a chance. Thanks.

Well, I'll just put it out there.

Indeed time is money and that's what your work is enabling me to save. In my humble estimation, for anyone doing backend data interaction work, Coronium shaves off a good 80% to 85% of code maybe more. And not just any code but dreaded network, PHP, JSON code... You can't imagine how much time Coronium is going to save us in the long run.

Hi Develephant,

 

I just joined the Google group, I hope I can get access for a test drive, I've been following the progress of the project for the last couple of weeks since the Corona Labs blog post and I see it has made  lot of progress in a very short time

 

Regards

Hector

Will this be something we can run on our own hardware, or will it be a service?

@cspence Yes, the idea is to run it on your own hardware.  Some choices for distribution so far that I want to make available are Docker instances (easier) and a "book" on how to build your own from the ground up (harder).  The "book" version will allow you to extend the server in many ways beyond the provided API, which are simply Lua modules included in a server scope, but you will need an intermediate/advanced knowledge of Linux and server architecture, or be really good at following instructions.  As a third option I could install it and set it up for a modest fee.

 

I have toyed with the idea of a "service" in addition to the other options, as it would be nice to recoup something for the hours, but that's not the main goal.  If there was a "service" it would be monthly, and have no API limit.  The server would be yours to break. ;)

 

Test instances are available to those who are serious about using it and helping make it better.

 

Hope that helps.  If you have anymore questions, let me know.

 

Cheers.

Would it be possible to deploy an instance on Heroku to avoid self-hosting?

 

best,

Jen

Hi Jen,

 

That might be possible, I have not looked at the details.  Docker is a little different though.  It's an open-source portable container.  For example Dokku is a mini-Heroku running as a Docker instance.

 

The goal of Coronium is to not have to pay specifically for services beyond your hosting, and to not be limited by API calls.  But I also want it to be user friendly.  You can have a 1GB DigitalOcean box for $10 a month and it's as simple as pie to deploy Docker (1 button), as it's a built in image.  After that you'd just pull the Coronium Docker instance and you'd be on your way.  Docker is also supported on Linode out of the box, and can be easily installed on most Linux platforms.

 

Docker instances can also be stacked into one box, and stay completely separated.  This is a bonus if you have multiple apps and want to use one server and not mash your data and code together.

 

There is no doubt that Coronium takes a little more effort to set up and may not be for everyone.  The paid services will always offer a better experience, as long as you can pay when your app gets popular.  Hosting costs will always be cheaper in that situation.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Cheers.

Can't stop feeding Polly. Poor thing is going to go belly up soon! :-) 

 

This is seriously amazing. I appreciate all the hard work you are putting into not only developing Coronium but also the documentation library and these clear videos.

 

Thank you very much!!!

Hi Chris,

Just finished studying your tutorials, they are excellent, you make it look so easy for us users. You are on to something big, please keep up with the great work, it was the first time I sent a push notification message to my android and iphone phones, I can't believe it was so easy.

Regards
Hector

Unbelievable isn't it. Coronium is the only solution for cross platform push messaging under one roof for us Corona devs and Chris is doing an amazing job maturing it. 

 

Other capabilities are out of this world too!!! I am working on some supporting functions easing the linkage between mySQL & sqlite. Thanks to Coronium's ability to run mySQL commands like "SHOW COLUMNS FROM table_name" and "SHOW TABLES" etc I can literally run a single line of code and get the table names & structures downloaded from the web and matching local db with its tables created in an instant. 

 

Writing web connected database driven business apps has never been this easy. The thought of never having to hand code another CREATE TABLE etc is just too much to grasp in one go. See attached screen shot mashup to get a sense of what is possible thanks to amazing Coronium. How long would it take you to prepare the sqlite table on the right matching the mysql table on the left? For me, from now on it will take less than 5 seconds! Next step, doing the reverse... take an sqlite db and create matching db in mysql if it does not exist. After that I'm going to tackle the insert & updates statements so I don't have to write them by hand any more.

 

Fun never ends in the land of Coronium. Thank you very much Chris for making it happen!!! Keep well.
