Since we made this website static, we have lost the ability to easily host files for download. See shoes/furoshiki#5

What do we think about using a subdomain to host downloads?

Options:

  1. point download.shoesrb.com at an S3 bucket.

    Pro: simple

    Con: difficult to publish static links, e.g. http://download.shoesrb.com/shoes/latest/windows

  2. make download.shoesrb.com a web service

    Pro: we can do whatever we want with urls

    Con: now we have a web service to maintain again

Thoughts? Other ideas?

I'm not sure how to do that when shoesrb.com is hosted on github pages :(

JS redirect isn't an option for our HTTP client... and I also think Meta redirect isn't?

(e.g. we want to get that URL with ruby's http library not a web browser...)

What we could do is have shoesrb.com/shoes/latest/sows-windows.exe always be the most current windows shoes release etc.

Anyone know if you can set up S3 paths to do redirects?

http://download.shoesrb.com/windows -> http://download.shoesrb.com/windows/whatever.exe
