  • Pupscrape

    I wrote this simple serverless app when my family and I were looking for a dog a few years ago. Our local shelter's site was a pain to use, so I wrote a Lambda function to grab the dogs available for adoption on a schedule, diff the last known, and send a text message to my wife and myself when there were new dogs to adopt. There's also a minimal companion UI that I tossed together to get the pertinent details of the dog quickly.
