Also, I am wondering if you have any plans or people working on Digitalocean or Cloudflare as providers? This is a pretty cool site if you have not seen it yet, it is for DigitalOcean https://github.com/andrewsomething/do-api-slugs Look up slugs for use with the API DigitalOcean slugs.do-api.dev/

Someone from the community started working on Digitalocean a while ago (this note in the Cloud Pricing API explains what’s next), I’ve heard Cloudflare a few times but much less than the other providers.

That's cool he got it pretty far along. Personally us Digitalocean, Cloudflare and Vercel - they have great prices and capabilities and so to avoid unexpected pricing surprises I have not needed to do much on AWS (pricey) and GCP (slow UI).

One thing that could be a niche content for your docs would be sample stacks for common tasks, because often it is hard to see how to put together the offerings to see what it takes to solve a problem. Sort of best-practices stacks and be able to price them. Lately I have been working on Grafana and showing how to create a VM with ingress, storage, apps, auth, monitoring - everything needed, and be able to see how to price it on different vendors. Educationally would be so helpful to see what production-ready stacks would actually be composed of and how to price it.

That’s good feedback, yeah we can write guides that start with a Terraform/Terragrunt stack then show how the Infracost VSCode, CLI and PR comments can be used during the dev/deploy lifecycle
