Louvre, version 1.1
How Section 411 went serverless (mostly)
A little over two years ago, I launched Section 411. In a post that made the launch official, I formally introduced the site, writing about the new name and some of the technology that powered it. I wrote that unlike its predecessor, Section 411 was built using a static site generator (Hugo) instead of relying on something to render the pages in real time. I also wrote about Louvre, an image manager and processor I built that could dynamically serve images to a CDN, solving what’s typically a pain point for static site generators.
