if anyone wants to port the Ruby script to python, put it on kickstarter and ill start u off with $50. i want a link to my webpage, CompassionPit, on the page for the final tool though. and one on the kickstarter page if ur feeling generous =)
p.s. anyone think we need a developer-tools kickstarter? paul, lmk before i give it to my friends at tech stars
Why does the script need to be in Python? Isn't Fake S3 just a server that you run and connect to from any codebase? I'm curious because Python is the language I use most, but I could easily see myself writing a Fake S3 in golang or clojure or even C.
I think I'm not being explicit enough. What would you use a Python version for, for which the Ruby Fake S3 implementation isn't suitable? I'm purely looking for a sample use case here. What problem does a Python Fake S3 solve?
A Kickstarter for dev tools would be a great idea. As well as new projects, it could also be beneficial for large changes to existing projects. Some combination of Kickstarter and bounties for GitHub issues would be interesting.
My only concern would be for the potential drama caused by members of the community who find the idea of paying for open-source development abhorrent.
