This website is now fully owned by Bezos very very Serverlessβ„’! Built using mildly forked Zola in GitHub Actions, uploaded to S3, content-delivered via CloudFront. And even DNS is now Route 53, otherwise properly having CloudFront on an apex (bare) domain would be difficult. Webmentions are outsourced to Webmention.io (+ a tiny endpoint converting their webhook to GitHub rebuild command is hosted on Glitch) and micropub is gone, at least for now. (When I have nothing better to do I might just make an app running in Lambda that would edit the git repo in response to Micropub requests, send outgoing webmentions, be a custom auth endpoint, eventually also handle incoming webmentions, and so on.)

I’m glad I only did this now: CloudFront Functions did not exist until a few months ago. With this functionality, it is a quite capable CDN. Still clunky and weird in some aspects though (e.g. β€œDefault Root Object” applying even after a Function rewrites /something/ to / was quite surprising)
