hyperbo.la :: lifestream

As of last night, all hyperbo.la AWS infrastructure is torn down. https://github.com/lopopolo/hyperbola/pull/111 #aws #terraform #devops #hypstatic

permalink

To make this change on dynamic hyperbola would have meant 5-10 Ansible deploys to a Vagrant VM. Iteration speed would have been terrible. #devops #a11y #lighthouse #hypstatic

The static site with local #webpack development environment is already paying off! Google Lighthouse accessibility score for hyperbo.la is now 100 with increased text contrast. #a11y #lighthouse #hypstatic

permalink

hyperbola is deployed to GitHub Pages now! Executed via DNS cutover with terraform. Now to destroy the old infrastructure in AWS. #github #hypstatic #aws #terraform #hypstatic

permalink

And just like that, dependabot is enabled for hyperbola-static, the WIP lifeastream branch is merged, and the CI is spruced up #hypstatic

There have been over 600 PRs in the last year of Artichoke. https://hyperbo.la/lifestream/737/ https://github.com/artichoke/artichoke/pull/847 #artichoke #git

This is a setup that has worked well for www.artichokeruby.org. Set dependabot to autoupdate deps and the "maintenance" has been updating content. Deploys are automatic, regression testing of dep upgrades is automatic. #automation #hypstatic

There is Ansible, Packer, Terraform, JavaScript, Webpack, Python, Django, Ubuntu, nginx, EC2, Route53, ALB, S3. I think I can simplify this to GitHub Actions, GitHub Pages, Node, Webpack, and statically configured DNS with my registrar. #hypstatic

Looking at the commit history for Python hyperbola over the last 3 years shows that it hasn't been developed, only maintained. It is done, but the current repo is expensive to maintain. #hypstatic

permalink

Switching to a static site built with webpack at least affords the opportunity to have an integration test that the site compiles. #automation #hypstatic

permalink

There is no automated build and no test suite. #automation #hypstatic

Dependency management in Python makes me sad. #fail #python #hypstatic

permalink

I've lost my ability to develop locally since I don't want to install VirtualBox on my new laptop. #fail #hypstatic

permalink

I run an outdated version of Django. #django #fail #hypstatic

permalink

The terraform config for this project is on 0.12 and I have no desire to update it to 0.13. #fail #terraform #automation #hypstatic

permalink

I will miss the ease of adding lifestream posts via the Django admin UI, but given that I'm posting elsewhere these days, I don't think I'll miss it too much #hypstatic

permalink

Remaining pieces are implementing hashtag browsing pages and the date archive browsing pages #hypstatic

permalink

Most of my updates these days are either in the Artichoke Discord or @artichokeruby Twitter #hypstatic

permalink

The AWS infra that the current site runs on is $50 a month I do not need to spend. #aws #cost #hypstatic

permalink

I've had a work in progress fork of hyperbola to migrate to a static site hosted on GitHub pages for over 6 months. I can't find the time to finish it. #hypstatic
