digitalmars.D - So no one is using Amazon S3 with D, why?

This is one has a nice implementation. The README does say it is unstable and I wonder which part was untested.

You can use S3 in its entirety with its REST API. I imagine people just make those calls with std.net.curl or something similar.

I've been in touch with the manager of the aws sdk team (he and I worked
together for a while). 
He's willing to help with adding another language to the full sdk, but it'd be
non-trivial.  There's 
a code generator (maybe more a generation language) involved that emits from a
base service 
description for the entire suite of aws services.

It'd take some work to do the full sdk.  Ignoring all that and just doing a
thin s3 specific api 
would be extremely easy since the api itself is so simple.  I have a quickly
hacked together -- ie 
would do better on a new round -- for a specific tool:

      https://github.com/braddr/downloads.dlang.org

Ignore the tool on top of the code, it's out of date.

I've done it before, but never posted the code in since it was just a quick and easy thing, about 50 lines total... But I personally don't use it anyway, I only do for work stuff.

Can you github the code?

How much the lowest vibed ready instance cost? I am looking for a cheapest solution for site.

If you want a cheap solution for running a website, there's always digital ocean: https://www.digitalocean.com/ You can run whatever you want on there quite easily. It's what I use when I want to spin up a server for something online. - Jonathan M Davis

There are several options: 1. Heroku Paas with s3 2. Docker Datacenter with your own image with dlanguage/dmd image as base. 3. Or hosting yourself on AWS or linode or digitaloceon. AWS is generally safe for small team with less resources. You may also look into Dokku (self-hosted Paas)

If you are into docker https://hyper.sh is also nice.

If you really want the _cheapest_ solution you can probably run vibe.d on small VPS with 64 or 128 MB ram. See https://www.lowendtalk.com/ and https://lowendbox.com/ I've used https://securedragon.net/ (12USD/year) and https://buyvm.net (15USD/year) for VPN purposes and never had any problem. If you need more power there are also often cheaper options than cloud hosting. For example, I use this as a GDC build server: https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/97773/vapornode-black-friday-7-4gb-kvm-lxc-in-tampa (However, as these are shared services you have to carefully look at network throughput / CPU usage guarantees) -- Johannes
