Wanna blow up my Raspberry Pi Zero?
Here, have some random ASCII cows: https://pi0.ar.al/cows

(I just want to see how it performs. Will turn it off at some point and delete this tweet when I do.) :)
Watching your requests streaming in and the little Raspberry Pi Zero handling them like a champ ;)
How does Site.js perform on a Raspberry Pi Zero W? Pretty darn well, I’d say 🤓
Couldn't find a suitable FLOSS alternative to PageKite or ngrok, which has Client & Server available. Do you know any?
@yala Haven’t had a chance to really look into it. Please let me know if you hear of anything. I’m very happy to ngrok but always good to know of things you can integrate into your own work if necessary :)
This sounds awesome. I have to try it
@__ant1sg__ Please do and let me know how you get on :)
@aral could you do this with a low end vps and haproxy redirect?
@dch No reason you couldn’t run your own dynamic DNS server, I guess :) Then again, if you have a low-end VPS, you could just run the site there ;)
@aral wouldn’t be half as neat as a pizero tho.
@dch Hehe, indeed :)
@aral oh cooool!
How's it exposed to Internet? Dynamic dns?
@RadicalEdward Ngrok :)
@aral never heard of, very interesting thanks, will look up!
@email@example.com might be off now but I couldnt connect as the
pi0.ar.al has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.
Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for pi0.ar.al. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.eu.ngrok.io, eu.ngrok.io
@adamprocter Hey Adam, yeah, I turned it off after the experiment. Did another little one (on Twitter this time) just now. Had about 30 folks. Ran flawlessly unwired on battery power and over LTS :)
