Automating Static Site Deploys to S3

Amazon's AWS S3 (Simple Storage Service) is amazing. With just a few simple steps it's easy to deploy a SSL secured website. This blog is a Hugo static site hosted on S3 and I regularly update the site when I make new content. Over time the upload process has become a burden: First I compile the production version of my website Then I login to my AWS account and go to the S3 bucket selection to get to my ‘benhofferber.

Migrate to AWS - Make a static website using S3, Cloudfront and Route 53 by Lambros Petrou If you've been following this blog closely you'll probably remember that recently the CSS dropped out and the whole site basically couldn't be reached for a short moment. This was because I was transitioning from a S3 hosted static blog to a CloudFront-served S3 static blog. The main reason for this change was to support HTTPS and handle rerouting to HTTPS from HTTP automatically.
