Idea: A tool for non-tech people to generate a static website that lets users save & load CMS content by using an external cloud storage service like Dropbox, Mega, etc. so you can host a full website for mostly-free

The biggest drawback I can see is private keys for cloud storage APIs. You can't hide those with a static website, so it would be exposed. Not great. Hmm...

@Alamantus properly designed oauth can run from a static page without exposing any sensitive credentials, so depending on the particular cloud service this may be safe to do.

I do this on to access the musicbrainz api without any secrets hitting my server.
