Dynosaur is a Heroku Auto-scaler

Dynosaur is letting us skip that whole rigmarole of wake-up-at-6am-because-we-were-featured-in-the-NYT-and-traffic-is-through-the-roof. More sleep equals happy developers, and this new API from Google is proving very useful to us from an operations perspective.

Seems to be a first (and only) plugin to use the Google Analytics Live API (currently in private beta) and a configurable 'users per dyno' value to estimate the required number of dynos.

Check out Dynosaur on GitHub.
