• Updated Hugo Site Automation Generator

    I’ve decided to finally go back and revamp my original hugo setup which can be found in the Hugo Site Auto Generated by Lambda post. The issue with that previous setup was if I had multiple posts (markdown files), the S3 event would trigger the lambda function as many times as the number of files uploaded, when I only needed it to run once after all were uploaded. My new plan was to publish the markdowns to github and have a lambda function trigger to pull the files and put into S3.
  • Solar Panel API Setup

    Description When I saw Enphase allows API connection to the data generated by the solar panels, I had to do something with it.

  • S3 Multifile Upload with Evaporate

    So now that my site is using Hugo for static HTML file generation, S3 to store the files, lambda to trigger the Hugo update, and CloudFront to serve images, the next step is to upload files to S3 directly from the browser. Thanks to my buddy Robert, he got me started and helped me get the API Gateway setup. HTML page with input type of file with evaporate. Include the aws_key, bucket: and aws_url.
