Stack Changes of My Blog

Stack Update
  • In end of 2021, the infrastructure was changed from Docker/CapRover/Docker Swarm to K8s, the cloud service provider was changed from AWS to Oracle Cloud.
  • In beginning of 2022, the monitoring service, New Relic was added.

Why to make these tech stack changes

  • WP is not flexible like using React Strapi, but it it get enough templates and themes can save you tens of times on styling
  • WP is heavier than Hexo, but with optimisation and for personal blog/CMS purpose, it is way more than enough.

FAQ for Stack Changes

  • Why do the stacks become more and more complicated? Are you just high key, doing this for showing your skills?
    • Not really, it is not like I built a k8s cluster for hosting my personal low traffic WordPress blog, it is more like I built a k8s cluster to make my projects easy to deploy/development, and I used the remaining computing resources for this blog.
