So here's a proof of concept

14 June 2014 21:50

The simplest possible DNS-based service which I could write to explore Amazon's DNS offering has to be dynamic DNS, so I set one up..

The record skx.dhcp.io can be updated to point to your current IP by running:

curl http://dhcp.io/set/efa6961c-f3dd-11e3-955b-00163e0816a2

Or to a fixed IP:

curl http://dhcp.io/set/efa6961c-f3dd-11e3-955b-00163e0816a2/

The code is modular and pretty nice, and the Amazon integration is simple.

(Although I need to write code to allow users to sign-up. I'll do that if it seems useful, I suspect there are already enough free ddns providers out there - though I might be the first to support IPv6 when I commit my next chunk of work!)
