Hugo on AWS with GitLab CI

Sat, Dec 11, 2021 | 800 Words

I create a lot of little static websites for friends and family and want them to have some level of reliabilty and ease in updating. Back in 2015 I moved this personal blog to AWS using a mixture of S3, CloudFront, and Route53. At the time there wasn’t a lot of players in the easy static site hosting space, but these days I’d recommend purpose built services like Netlify. I mostly stick with my current setup to avoid the hassle of migrating so many projects or having two separate pipelines running.
