What's your privacy-focused / ethical stack?

And what are the total costs (or risks) that you have to pay? Self-hosted? Also, would you donate anyway? (I do worry about sustainability of service providers)

What is your monthly cost? And what about learning curve, in your opinion?

(And what about social marketing / make your website popular?)

Currently I have

Concerning about

  • Hosting / VPS. DigitalOcean and Linode are very popularly recommended, but a while ago, I asked on Kuzzle, and they recommended scaleway.

Learning curve

  • I have not yet been successful in implementing Auth / API protection without relying on Firebase Auth / localStorage. Might be nice if I move localStorage into cookies.

Looking for

  • Auth. Seen Okta, but concerned about the price.
  • Storage, that I can use programmatically in both adding new data and retrieval.
  • After all, support, in case I cannot solve it myself.

I guess my costs is currently around 15 USD / mo, while I actually earn zero money.

In the end, I think sustainability is the most important, if you wish to serve the general public.

BTW, what do you think about many donations (whether online or offline, at least in my experience) prefer to be monthly / yearly, rather than once?
