Hi! I have a basic CRUD web application that allows users to generate images, gifs, videos. The process can take a while since it can generate thousands of images/gifs/videos. Right now, I just execute a Node script in a child process and it works perfectly fine.
However, my traffic is growing and I always get worried when 2+ processes are triggered at the same time.
I’m open to recommendations here, but I would like to execute my Node script from a droplet that I create on-demand and kill when it’s done.
What is the best way to achieve this?
