Hello devtalk !
Heroku are closing their free tier (dynos) later this month and I was wondering if you guys could recommend any alternatives that offer free tier. My application is for personal use, mainly for playing around a bit with frameworks, languages and building an API for my web frontend.
I don’t have customers and I don’t need 24/7 availability. The data is external so I don’t need a database either.

What about Render.com? Or netlify.com?
fly.io is also worth a look if you’re using a language they support
cheers @AstonJ - I’ll have a look at them
I second Fly.io
I have been using it for personal projects and have been very happy with it.
You even get 24/7 availability and a database within the free tier.
If you are not using a language they support, you could deploy using a Dockerfile.
thanks for the advice @dewetblomerus - my service is dockerised so this could be just what I’m looking for. I will let you know how it goes.
what i do love with fly.io is that it treats Elixir as one of its first class citizen.
OK - up and running on Fly.io now ! No wait time for the service to wake up - a much better experience for the user (i.e. me )
Thanks for the advice !
