      We’re building something (http://wym.io) which happens to provide most of Lambda’s (and {webscript,hook}.io’s) features (sorry!), with a whole host of (shortly open source) features and a much bigger picture (think a whole new language) alongside.

      I think we’ve minimised xkcd #927 (standards) and lock-in as effectively as possible.

      I won’t claim more here until I can show you, but there’s a solid, functioning demo at http://wym.io/ and we’re only a few weeks away from a lot more. We’re really throwing our lives at this, so do expect results. :)

        Sounds really interesting … I joined your announce list!

          Good to hear! We’ll get more to you soon!

          Having been on so many ‘-announce’ lists over the years, I can’t think why I didn’t call ours that. Hm.

      AWS Lambda looks really cool! These types of services are the future.

      If anyone is interested in an open-source alternative to AWS Lamba ( with no amazon lock-in ) check out my project http://hook.io

      I remember something similar released a while ago – the idea was you could attach Lua scripts to, say, button clicks and such and also keep some state around. Anyone remember that that was?

      Was there when they announced it. Wish they get other languages quick. Since they now support docker, it would make sense to sonehow use that.
