If you’ve been following my recent tweets or issues on this my Blog repository, you might be aware that a couple of days ago, I started working on this idea of using GitHub Issues for creating post entries for my GitHub Pages Jekyll site.
I’ve started working on a new event driven, server-less blogging engine for my GitHub Pages blog.— Eneko Alonso (@eneko) December 22, 2020
100% over-engineered, just for fun.
After several hours of super fun work spread over these three days, between bike rides, walks, movies, and other PTO fun, I managed to put together this Frankestein of blogging engine. And this is just the start (or so I believe).
The most important thing is that it works!
As described in my previous articles, I thought of building this using only GitHub Actions. However, I really like working with AWS Services, so this was an opportunity to have some fun and implement a couple of things: an SQS queue, and a Lambda function (in Swift) for processing events.
If by any chance you find this interesting, and would like to know more details, please leave a comment or ping me on Twitter.
