    Cloudflare Workers: It is excellent for building serverless applications on top of Cloudflare's global network. With Cloudflare workers, my app is served to reduce the latency immensely for users wherever they are. Check out projects built with workers!

    As a second solution, you can deploy a very simple Cloudflare Worker. The docs will get you started on how to create and deploy a worker, so I'll only show the relevant pieces here.

    Another advantage of Nitro is its highly optimized, universal output to the new .output directory. The core server bundle will now be less than 1 MB and will see a notable performance increase. For example, cold starts will be faster by 75-100 times! This will prove very beneficial for environments like Cloudflare Workers.

    Have you looked into using a serverless pub/sub model, like Cloudflare's Workers KV? The example they give is a simple IRC-like distributed chatroom (https://github.com/cloudflare/workers-chat-demo), but theoretically it may work for games too.

    Player state can be stored in a decentralized key-value store that Cloudflare manages. They absorb all the DDoS and handle replication between edge nodes. You don't see any of that. https://www.cloudflare.com/products/workers-kv/

    Or maybe it was their Durable Objects product... I forget how that's different from Workers KV: https://developers.cloudflare.com/workers/learning/using-dur...

    Then each game client uses a worker to access that KV, and Cloudflare will route that worker to its nearest edge node and retrieve the state from there (which was previously replicated a moment ago, internal to Cloudflare's infrastructure).


    I don't know if this would result in acceptable latency, but it could help with DDOS at least.

  • Miniflare – Simulator for developing and testing Cloudflare Workers
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-24
    For example, wrangler dev just stopped working on all my current workers. All requests return a timeout error.

    Only workers created with wrangler generate work.

    I opened this issue and never received an answer:


    I closed it because wrangler dev still works with generate, so I assumed it was a problem on my end.

    It still sucks that it just stopped working for no reason.

    Here are things I ran into.

    `wrangler login` doesn't work if I'm not already logged in to CloudFlare website. If I have to login first, it doesn't do whatever necessary redirect it should do so most of the time I have to run `wrangler login` twice.

    `wrangler dev` is slow.

    `wrangler dev` requires root domain. https://github.com/cloudflare/wrangler/issues/1529

    I also feel that the interaction between DNS settings and workers is under-documented, probably because it crosses responsibility of two different teams.

    For example, it took me way too long to figure out that if I have a workers-only website for foo.bar.org, I have to put dummy DNS entry for foo.bar.org

    Frankly, despite reading wrangler docs multiple times, I don't think I fully understand the interactions between what's in the DNS, what's in the workers route and further more if you add pages to the mix.

    Docs should explicitly spell out DNS / routes setup for most common scenarios like: 1) workers-only site (no proxying to any other server) 2) workers in front of a proxied website

    Workers should be seamlessly integrated with pages i.e. pages should just automatically recognize and use workers-site/ directory on deploy.

    I don't think setting up pages automatically configures DNS settings for its domain, which it obviously should (might be mis-remembering).

    Ohhh I remember this too, I hated how it consistently dropped connections. A community member fixed this for us (here https://github.com/cloudflare/wrangler/pull/2008) so that it transparently and automatically reconnects now and the experience has gotten so much better.

    And of course, miniflare reduces even the chance of that to zero :)

  • How to Debug Cloudflare Workers with AppSignal
    dev.to | 2021-09-22
    Cloudflare Workers is a serverless platform that allows developers to build and quickly deploy backend logic using JavaScript. Unlike most serverless platforms, worker functions can respond to a request in less than 500 milliseconds in cold start conditions. Unfortunately, building a worker application does get frustrating at times due to the difficulty of debugging the code.

    Yeah, I'm not seeing much evidence of the allegations in this article. CloudFlare would be very, very stupid to have set up a cache stampede of the sort OP describes.

    I kinda wonder if someone's using https://workers.cloudflare.com/ to crawl their site daily.
