@yarmo Hey remember we talked about free subdomains for foss projects? I looked into it today. Should be easy enough to make it a git-based service but we'd have to use a scalable/decent service provider (AWS/GCP) which doesn't really fit the FOSS model. And it'd be expensive (10k subdomains x 10k queries each would be ~$40/month).

@karan oh I do 😉 still excited! As for the infrastructure, I made a start a few weeks ago (and them got preoccupied with another project, launching soon 🤗), it's all git based as we said. Separate yaml files per project which on upload get turned into a single json (could be also be a database).

Example below has a different domain, one of the suggestions we discussed.

Index repo: codeberg.org/FOSSBest/index
Index website: foss.best
Subdomain example: opsv.foss.guru


@karan just realized the example isn't even in the index yet. Automated DNS entries are one of the next things on my todo
