At work there's a cool product for deploying websites that has great integration with GitHub, it's called Cloudflare Pages. I use and pay for a lot of Cloudflare products but hadn't got around to using Pages. The nudge came when an old friend from university who has been managing jgc.org for 24 years(!) told me she'd like to decommission the server.
The actual content on jgc.org was originally generated by a Perl script that output static HTML. From time to time I'd modify the Perl, run it, and deploy the HTML using FTP. Really old school. Over time I moved to just running everything on the server without the FTP mess.
And, in reality, most of the content on jgc.org is on this blog, and that uses Blogger. So I decided to try Cloudflare Pages for the home page and go for the simplest possible page. It's all text and a single page and it looks like this:
From never used Cloudflare Pages to a deployed HTML page in 8 minutes
A nice touch was that the Cloudflare Pages screen asking me to choose a repository automatically noticed that I'd created a new one.
