Even though the new workflow was working well, I decided to move the repository for Indigo Spot to GitLab from GitHub. Why? Because GitLab provides unlimited private repositories free of charge, so rather than pay $7 USD per month for private repositories, I decided to move to the service that provides that free of charge for developers. I am not sure how sustainable GitLab’s business model is at the moment, but I am going to see how things pan out.
It seems that casting about for a CMS solution to this site has thrown me for a huge loop lately. In wanting to clear up extraneous subscription fees, I decided to cancel the Wordpress.com hosting for Indigo Spot. I also did not want to go back to self-hosted WordPress (or any CMS) on AWS or Google Cloud. Since GitHub finally added HTTPS for custom domains to their GitHub Pages hosting, I thought that might be a good landing spot.
