<civodul>it's technical but i find it very clear <civodul>and it nicely presents the kind of problems we solve <civodul>i wonder if the first paragraph should have one or two sentences re-explaining what the GWL is about <rekado_>I’m very busy today (trying to migrate off of Shiny Server Pro[prietary] to Guix + nginx), but I hope I can add a few sentences tonight.
***rekado_ is now known as rekado
<rekado>I added a short introduction to the GWL section. <civodul>i hope it didn't spoil your evening :-) <rekado>no, it was already spoiled, so all is good! <rekado>I’ve been sitting here with very little interruption since I got up. <rekado>I should be hacking on the GWL to be able to publish a release, but this work thing came up… <rekado>Shiny Server Pro apparently costs us 10kEUR per year(?), so it would be sweet if we could just not spend that and use Guix instead. <civodul>did you consider providing a Guix Server Pro offer? <civodul>wasn't it efraim who wrote this r-shiny service BTW? <rekado>Shiny Server Pro is, I think, a proprietary redistribution of nginx that makes Shiny application deploymnent easier. <rekado>the Pro variant permits one to run more than one process per Shiny app, and it allows more than one version of R to be used. <rekado>so I thought: we could totally just use nginx and use Guix containers (or “containers”) <rekado>next time I should charge for it :) <rekado>(we should consider starting a consulting company)
