About a year ago, Nodejisu, the service which hosted Specref, was
acquihired by Godaddy.
I promptly moved it to Heroku. Updated the doc and a couple of services
I knew were relying on it.
And then completely forgot to inform this list.
Yesterday, Nodejitsu closed down which caused outages in apps which
hadn't made the transition, notably:
- Bikeshed's CLI update command (for which there's a pending pull
- W3C's hosted Respec, which was relying on a proxy to Nodejitsu and
not, as I thought, on their own instance of the service. This was fixed
Friday morning already.
Going forward, this outage would have been avoided had the service been
hosted on a subdomain of http://www.specref.org/. The main blocker for
that right now is setting up the SSL certificate. Certainly something I
have on my radar, but haven't had a chance to look into yet (it seems
particularly painful and/or costly on Heroku). Help welcomed.
