Amazon S3 seem like a common solution for object storage these days[1] but I'm seeing almost no activity in this area (stable native D API). Why?

At least one package: https://code.dlang.org/packages/vibe-s3

You can use S3 in its entirety with its REST API. I imagine people just make those calls with std.net.curl or something similar.

I've been in touch with the manager of the aws sdk team (he and I worked together for a while). He's willing to help with adding another language to the full sdk, but it'd be non-trivial.  There's a code generator (maybe more a generation language) involved that emits from a base service description for the entire suite of aws services.

It'd take some work to do the full sdk.  Ignoring all that and just doing a thin s3 specific api would be extremely easy since the api itself is so simple.  I have a quickly hacked together -- ie would do better on a new round -- for a specific tool:

     https://github.com/braddr/downloads.dlang.org

Ignore the tool on top of the code, it's out of date.

I've done it before, but never posted the code in since it was just a quick and easy thing, about 50 lines total...

But I personally don't use it anyway, I only do for work stuff.

How much the lowest vibed ready instance cost? I am looking for a cheapest solution for site.

If you want a cheap solution for running a website, there's always digital ocean:

https://www.digitalocean.com/

You can run whatever you want on there quite easily. It's what I use when I want to spin up a server for something online.

This is one has a nice implementation. The README does say it is unstable and I wonder which part was untested.

Can you github the code?

There are several options:
1. Heroku Paas with s3
2. Docker Datacenter with  your own image with dlanguage/dmd image as base.
3. Or hosting yourself on AWS or linode or digitaloceon. AWS is generally safe for small team with less resources. You may also look into Dokku (self-hosted Paas)
