Vidrio payment server

The Vidrio purchase page currently posts its form data to http://localhost:8080/pay! To make this work, it needs to post to a payment server.

I want this at For this server, I’ll use Heroku and Golang.

I’m using a “monorepo” with many other things in. This interacts badly with Heroku and Go. I’ll develop this server in a separate repository.

I now have a server running at, which is linked to from my payment form. At some point, I’ll move this to a domain (but with TLS this is $7/month on Heroku).

I wrote this because I'm making Vidrio. I'm using Stripe to charge users. For that, I need a payment server. This post is not associated with my employer. This site is hosted by Netlify (who are great, but I'm not associated with them either).
