    Hi Todd

    You just need to remove the Flying Sphinx add-on via Heroku's website or using the command-line tool:

        heroku addons:remove flying_sphinx

    I don't hold any ill will towards you, but I'm curious as to why you're cancelling - would you mind letting me know why? If it's something to do with Flying Sphinx itself, I'd be keen to address any problems people are having.

    Cheers

    Hi Pat,

        We were not using ruby, but wanted to use sphinx on heroku. Initially,
    looking at your solution it looked great, but once we tried it out we
    realized it was a ruby only solution and wouldn't fit our needs.

    It would be nice if you exposed and documented the internal HTTP library so
    other languages could be incorporated...

    Hi Todd

    I've actually been working on that a bit yesterday for Python. What language are you using for your app?

    Certainly planning to document the API better in the near future too.

    Pat,

       We were using node.js for this app.

    Good to know Todd, thanks. I'll focus on node.js once the python library is sorted.

    Do you have any recommendations of node libraries for testing, stubbing/mocking and making api calls? I'll be learning as I go (though I'm familiar enough with javascript).

    Cheers

    So, I usually just use the built in assert. If it's a server then I
    require the server and bind it to a port and assert the responses... I
    know there is some fancier testing like vows, but I don't usually make very
    complex apps in node... hope that helps!

    Thanks Todd - and while I realise you've probably gone with another search tool (completely understandable), just wanted to let you know that I've now got a JS library for interacting with Flying Sphinx:
    https://github.com/flying-sphinx/flying-sphinx-js

    If you have a moment, feel free to read through the README, and let me know if there's anything obvious missing. If you don't have time, no worries :)

    Cheers

    Hi Pat,

        This looks really good on the surface, I'll try to find time this week
    to look into this more to give you better feedback.

    Also: here's some API docs, just in case :)
    http://flying-sphinx.com/api

    In the process of making the command-line behaviour consistent across Ruby, Python and JS - once that's ready, website docs will get all the details.

    Hi Pat,

       Sorry, I didn't get time to give you more feed back just glancing
    at the doc updates now this looks fantastic and will definitely be
    much better for new comers and probably will come backup for me in a
    later project. Thanks so much for the great service!

    -Todd
