Architecture behind mdleom.com

mdleom.com is hosted on a VPS with Cloudflare CDN. The OS is NixOS and the web server is Caddy. The web server functions as a file server with ability to failover to mirrors (Cloudflare Pages, Netlify and GitHub Pages). Blog content is deployed from a GitLab repository which hosts the source. The repo also hosts images and attachments; images are resized on-the-fly using Statically.
