Running Hugo on AWS using AWS Amplify

After running my Hugo blog on AWS S3 + CloudFront for a few years I’ve dediced to move it to AWS Amplify, following this howto.

While the setup on S3 and CloudFront was already simple, provided you deploy some CloudFormation code, this new Amplify method is even less work: You connect your Amplify app to a Github repo, configure some things like SSL certs and DNS, and done. No build pipelines needed, no deployment setup needed, AWS Amplify does it all for me.

I also switched from the Hyde-X theme to Coder, since Hyde-X was not getting updates anymore and it was giving a lot of warnings with the latest Hugo version.
