Back to Netlify

baty.net is back to being built and deployed using Netlify. I moved everything to Amazon S3 a couple of months ago as a way to figure out how to do that. I still think S3 is a great way to host static sites that don’t change often, but I haven’t liked it quite as much for hosting a site that is updated frequently, like my blog.

Using S3 required a combination of sync scripts, invalidations, keys, cloudfront distribution configuration, etc. Overall it felt like more trouble than it was worth.

So, back to Netlify. It goes something like this:

  1. Create a site” in Netlify 2. Point it at a Github repo 3. Update DNS

Now I have continuous deployment, automatic SSL, a global CDN, and a bunch of other stuff I don’t even use yet. For free.
