External / api dependencies
If you were to set up a meroku clone for your personal use, you would need
- A secret ( a 12 charactor hex string )
- An s3 bucket with the name $secret
- Your Ec2 default security group should allow all traffic
- An elastic ip allocation. Usually has a name like "eipalloc-..."
- A free certificate for your domain from letsencrypt
- You would also need a wildcard certificate so that consumer apps work without warnings in https:// mode
