Relax, they said. Eat some turkey, spend time with family.
What do I do? Work on a personal project.

Woot, that moment your free hosting company sends ya some swag. Netlify, stay awesome.
... Hey there Heroku, how you doin'?4
The only one of them which will build your frontend for you and can handle a custom HTTPS domain in one click.
Perfect for spontaneous side projects, especially when they added form handlers.
Too bad it’s blocked here in Russia.4
Ever tried to do something “simple” and it ended up taking several days and a piece of your sanity?
Trying to connect my website to a blog site made with Hexo has been that for me.
I am actively trying to not think about the fact that my live website is so horrendously broken.
le moment when the program finally does what you want. After hours and hours fixing things in a myriad of stacks ands frameworks...
tl;dr. web hosting && a panic attack && security threat
i wasn't sure whether my brother's domain was hosted or not (because it wasnt showing a website and he didnt know any better).
so i decided to host a react-app for it on netlify and pointed the domain's nameservers towards it (a separate security threat at bottom).
all went well and now when you punch in the domain it ..all-behold.. shows a website.
NOW, i remember my brother was using the domain's email which probably means it was hosted, right?. so im panicking because im not sure whether i just deleted all his emails or not because it's 1:15 am and he's asleep.
there is a rant in there somewhere but im in too much of a shock as to how much data i might have just accidentally deleted
another tl;dr: my domain registrar let me change someone else's settings..
the reason i didnt know his domain settings is that he didnt know his password.
i had bought a couple of domains and was gonna host them on netlify. while i was doing this a bright idea hit me.. "you should finally build a website for your brother for the domain he bought 7 years ago"..
this is where the fun begins.
i sent an email to my registrar to point all nameservers of all domains to my nameservers and just to try out i included my brother's domain into it (i dont own this domain it's not registered by my email), and the next day i get an email telling me they've successfully made all changes.
Now tomorrow is monday and i'm going to their office to tell them i found a security flaw and see how long i can stall before actually telling them what it was and how their live's could've been made hell.2
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
Working with google shit is a fucking nightmare.
WHY DO THEY HAVE TO REINVENT EVERYTHING ALL OVER AGAIN?
Fuck you, google. I wish you could rot in hell.5
I swear that Netlify CMS is straight up magic. Finally something that is simple and unopinionated and just works out of the box. After understanding how it works I just plugged it into a hardcoded project and the hardest part was just copy-pasting the content.2
I just knew about netlify
I paid so much less (10$ first year and 15$ second year) instead of 45$/year with OVH for a domain.
Is there any cons with Netifly ?17
Got a new job and I'm moving from academia to industry. Decided to step up my web dev game by using Netlify and GatsbyJS to build a static site blog.
Not a difficult task but it forces me to look at more current technologies.
What have devs tried for creating and hosting their own blog?
I have tried multiple options with goal of being least painful to maintain. Recent is based on Netlify + Gatsby. Have documented here - https://abhi2rai.com/blog/...
But want to hear what others have done.8
Just wanted to say that netlify is so nice. Just 4 clicks and you continuously deploy your Frontend from a git repo. Even free for personal use 👌2
Can i do api call every hour a free service so that it will not fall asleep? Like www.repl.it, netlify and Heroku?
What is the duration when they fall asleep? 2 hours?6
How to separately host the backend and the frontend ???
I have express API repository which is currently hosted in Heroku along with its documentation site written in ejs.
But now I'm planning on separating the docs website with gatsby and moving it into another repo and hosting it on netlify while the API service still remains in Heroku.
Here is the end goal :
"/" : the docs website.(netlify)
"/api" : the API services.(heroku)
Can someone help me with how to implement this in the actual application?3
