Blog website created with serverless.com


#1

Hi All,

I would like to start a blog / website the would be hosted serverlessly on AWS. I would love to use serverless.com framework.

Any help regarding links to resources, plugins, sample configuration will be appreciated.

Ideally, I would like following characteristics:

  • hosted on S3
  • via CloudFront
  • on domain set up in Route53
  • written in any language, preferably JS

A blog can be dynamic (ie. database) or static (posts are written offline, a new version of website uploaded to S3 with each new post).

Yan Cui did something with Shifter: https://theburningmonk.com/2018/03/this-blog-is-now-serverless/

Also, there are some new Serverless CMS projects out there. I don’t know how far along they are.

Thanks @jeremydaly I will check that link.

Right now I’m looking at https://hexo.io and tutorial at https://slowcoder.com/2018/03/27/Build-a-Serverless-Production-Ready-Blog/. I will try to find out how easy it is to integrate simple lambda functions (i.e. mail list subscribe function).

This does not use serverless.com but end result looks ok.

Also, I was thinking of writing Serverless Component, but I couldn’t manage to deploy https://github.com/serverless/components/tree/master/registry/static-website and gave up.

I decided that I will go with hexo.io.
