    Project mention: Porting Curveball to Bun | | 2022-09-13

    To get Express to run on AWS Lambda the Node http stack needs to be emulated, or a full-blown HTTP/TCP server needs to be started and proxied to. Each of these workarounds require a ton of code from libraries like serverless-express.

    Project mention: API Calls made from Frontend vs Node | | 2022-03-11

    If you are making API calls that are unique or that get you ip banned or rate limited then make them from the frontend if not then from the backend. Also the CORS errors are for security reason and they happen if the call is made from the frontend to a site or API that does not have cors control headers specified. CORS errors can be bypassed with the API (hacky bypass) if you really need to make the call from the frontend. So be sure to always make calls from the backend if possible.
