I’m converting a bunch of dynamic Manila sites from the early days of blogging to be static sites served from Amazon S3 buckets. It’s pretty great but there’s one feature I’d love to see.
- S3-hosted sites are case-sensitive. So if an object is named myCamera, and a link to it calls for mycamera, the link will fail.
- This behavior might be okay for new sites, but for sites that were converted from other servers, it’s a reason not to do the conversion because there are already lots of links that don’t have the case right, because in the past they didn’t have to.
- One more thing — it would be useful, in different contexts, to have HTTPS as an option. I don’t want the content of the pages to be screwed with as they travel from server to the user’s machine.
