Website now powered by Hexo, AWS CloudFront and S3

Over the past days I moved my blog over to AWS CloudFront and S3, powered by the static blog generator Hexo.

Here are a few highlights:

  • The source code of the website is now open source on GitHub.
  • The infrastructure for the website is automated and codified by a CloudFormation template.
  • The website is secured via HTTPS thanks to CloudFront and the Amazon Certificate Manager
  • The build of the website if entirely codified and automated with AWS CodePipeline and CodeBuild (see the CloudFormation template for details).
  • The website and building infrastructure are serverless. No servers, VMs or containers to manage.
  • Major performance enhancements since the website is now static and powered by a CDN.
