Any place to run a simple python script? For free.

I just need to keep it running, forever.

Can't run on my laptop, script needs constant internet.

    @vish they all need a process listing on a port for incoming connections, they crash otherwise. If i have that processing running, i can't run my non web thread.

    docker? or a vm on aws or such... But I think theres gotta be a better way to do what u wanna do tho.... maybe use nodejs instead of python I understand its threading is asyncronous and sockets wont close if theres no activity... Or maybe I missunderstanding what u saying..

    @kdev pythons threads are blocking, otherwise it would have so easy running my process in the background.

    You can use a Google cloud environment if you wanna get your hands a bit dirty.
