A collection of services with great free tiers for developers on a budget. Sponsored by Mockoon, the best mock API tool.

Overview

Stack on a budget (Free Tier Driven Development FTDD)

Mockoon logo
Stack On A Budget is sponsored by Mockoon, the best solution to create mock APIs.

What is it?

This repository offers a collection of services with great free tiers for developers on a budget. Because not everyone has 20$ per month to spend on app or database hosting for every single side-project.

Nowadays, a lot of services are offering really good free tier more than enough for testing small apps and even put them in production. They are just waiting to be used by you.

Contribution

Feel free to contribute to existing services or add new ones. Please follow the guidelines when submitting, you can find them in CONTRIBUTING.md, and especially the rules about how to select a service and describe it (free tier, limitations...).

The goal is to have enough details about each free tier so developers can choose whether or not the service suits their needs just by reading the description.

    I think that the list will quickly get out of hand. How about splitting each section into a separate file and leaving only the table of contents in the main readme?

  • Travis-CI integration

    Travis-CI integration

    Hello, Since the urls are getting more and more everyday, it'd be keep them under control and know if they are still reachable or not. https://github.com/dkhamsing/awesome_bot is the best way to do this it seems. So, I created the .travis.yml file to trigger Travis-CI to run a build and check the urls' availability.

    I hope you'll accept this PR, thanks in advance.

    Add Gearhost database hosting

    Free DB is limited to 10 MB only. Is that too restricting?

    There is also $5 option with 1GB storage for MySQL and MS SQL. Or do only free tiers qualify to this list?

    Checkbot patch 1

    Hi, I'm the creator of Checkbot. I couldn't see a category it would fit under (maybe "App testing" is close) so I created a "website testing" one. Hope you find this useful and I followed the guidelines correctly.

    Thanks for the great resource!

  • Should AWS's DynamoDB be added?

    Should AWS's DynamoDB be added?

    The documentation is unclear:

    As part of AWS’s Free Tier, AWS customers can get started with Amazon DynamoDB for free. DynamoDB customers get 25 GB of free storage, as well as up to 25 write capacity units and 25 read capacity units of ongoing throughput capacity (enough throughput to handle up to 200 million requests per month) and 2.5 million read requests from DynamoDB Streams for free.

    I can't tell if the phrase "AWS's Free Tier" refers to the "some things free for the first year" only, or not.

    Later, in the pricing example, they write:

    If you haven’t used up your free tier allotment (25 write capacity units, 25 read capacity units, 2.5 million Streams read requests, 25 GB of storage), you can run this application for free on DynamoDB.

    This seems to indicate an ongoing free amount. I'm (well) outside my "free tier" first year, but I'm not currently using DynamoDB for anything.

    Anyone who has used DynamoDB extensively care to comment on their actual costs? I'll have something going in a few weeks, so I can comment by then.

  • Services for

    Services for "Customer Interactions"?

    How about including things for customer engagements, maybe full CRMs but otherwise just "Chat" tools.

    For Customer Chat tools, here are the most interesting ones IMHO (analysis done 1-2 years ago):

    ... if you like it I can post a few more that I researched. Just don't have time to do a proper pull request with the right format etc.

    Well done and thanks for a great service!
