Now and then you ask us: How do you run cloudonaut.io? Today, I want to share some insights with you about the work and technology behind the scenes of our blog.
- How do we come up with new topics?
- How do we host this website?
- How do we survive to be listed on the front page of Hacker News?
We write our blog posts in Markdown and use hexo to generate a static website.
We host our blog on CloudFront and S3. See CloudFormation template for a static website.
Lambda@Edge allows us to handle redirects and optimize images on the fly. Check out our static-website-img-optimize if you want to build something similar.
