What is Astro Devblog?
A serverless (JAMstack) blog template intended to be deployed to Netlify which republishes articles to Medium and dev.to.
Read about how to deploy the template for yourself here, or see this YouTube video. Or, better yet, dive into the git repo.
Previously, I was using 11ty for my blog. However, Astro offers several advantages, including…
- Islands architecture allows me to incorporate UI frameworks/libraries when necessary or helpful
- SSR futureproofs my stack
I have not yet rebuilt all of the features associated with my old blog, but I am optimistic that Astro is a good choice for my blog’s future. In the near future, I will share the aspects of Astro that I enjoyed, as well as the pieces with which I found frustration. If you’re interested in that, consider following me on Dev, Medium, YouTube, and/or Twitter.
Thanks for reading!
