[LRUG] Launching websites

I've not seen anything that does this (yet) but I keep meaning to create a
generator for our internal microservices which creates a basic Sinatra app
with all this stuff preconfigured. You mentioning automating the other side
of getting API tokens has got me thinking that most of these services have
an API which could be used to automate the entire process.

I'm afraid I don't have any real pointers on actually automating all this
yet, but yes, I at least am seeing the same problem!
