Approach

Life automation scripts are so useful!
This particular script helps NUS students declare temperature.

This one helps people auto-swipe profiles on Tinder.

However there are very troublesome to run.
For example, setting up a cronjob requires access to a server machine available 24/7.
You need to deploy your functions to AWS lambda, then set a time interval.
These are all too much effort for running a simple script.
The difficult setup also limit the usefulness of scripts to developers only.
As a lazy ass person who is already so lazy with my life, I do not want to spend another few hours figuring out how to use the confusing UI of AWS.
The only thing I care about is I want the script to run, perferably with as little setup cost as possible, so I can move on with my life!

Ideas

💡
