14. Stay on Netlify

Accepted

Context

The pull of web infrastructure is strong for me. I regularly feel like I’m capping myself by not understanding how AWS works and how to leverage it.

Most recently, sst got me really excited — especially with their AstroSite integration.

But now is not the right time to take that plunge.

Decision

I’m sticking with Netlify for the immediate future. I can re-evaluate this once I’ve completed Epic React production.

Consequences

  • I may build some “server”-side features with a little Netlify lock-in. I accept the eventual re-write.
  • I don’t have what to do with my Nettlify redirects. That’s nice.
