I was thinking about the data hosting portion of my vision with the LkaT Ecosystem.
As I switched to 2023-10-16 Blog Rewrite to Quartz life was made easy. I then thought about hosting a CSV file. I can’t on Netlify. I’m not sure if this is allowed but it makes sense from their perspective: just hosting web resources for static sties.
I also have some data files in GitHub. This worked, but I felt bad even though they are small files.
Just Do It
So that led me down the object storage path, which is the right thing. I’m hoping to consolidate downloads publically via one place. Also, these may get sizable so no need to abuse Netlify.
$0 egress cost for R2! So I’ll use this instead of S3 and not have to worry about things.
You have to add your credit card, this is not a problem.
A caveat I noticed when you make a bucket public is that they don't recommend this for production and it isn't meant for production. I don't foresee any issue here

- Get their CLI: Wrangler setup ✅ 2023-10-16
Now I need to write to R2 programmatically!
