The time has finally come to rethink how I deploy my personal website. For the last 3 years I've been using homebase and pushing changes to it via dat protocol. It worked great, but things at the dat project have moved on, and deploys are no longer reliable.

Do I try to upgrade to hyper protocol, or ipfs? Maybe something more traditional like a git based deploy? Or just go for dead simple like rsync?

Decisions, decisions...


Wound up standing up a simple Caddy webserver, and using rsync to deploy. Simple enough.

Thanks @YellowGrue and @hopeless for talking sense. Already feeling better about it.

@xyhhx I really like it. If you only need a simple webserver or proxy, it makes things really fast and easy.
