Cloudflare Static Site Hosting

Introduction In this previous post, I detailed my transition from WordPress to Hugo static sites. This post discussed hosting the site locally in a Docker container web server and exposing ports 80 and 443 to a reverse proxy on my DMZ network.

This project was a lot of fun. With extremely limited circuit documentation on the web and never having personally used Arduino before, there were a lot of interesting hiccups I ran into. Overall, this project was a bit out of my wheelhouse, but with much determination, the finished product turned out rather nicely....
