While waiting for my coffee water to boil, I decided to try out surge.sh, a tool for static web publishing. After installing the cli using npm I ran the surge command in the directory I wanted to publish:
And that’s what was needed to get the static content at isak.me published. After adding a CNAME record pointing to
na-west1.surge.sh the site was up and running with a custom domain. The water was not even close to boiling yet!
Their pro plan, priced at $30 per month, is needed to configure SSL for custom domains, so I probably won’t be using surge for anything in the foreseeable future, but it was still cool to see just how easy surge can host static content.
