>What does your build pipeline look like? :0 Do you push to a repo and run tests? Or do you just push to a repo, then move the files to a server, and then restart
I have a Ubuntu Server running LynxChan which is the main live site, and I run a local version on my personal machine. I make changes on my machine and push them to the main server.
>Do you use docker containers? How many servers do you use to keep the site running? How much do they cost?
No I don't use docker, not entirely sure what it is actually, haven't worked with it but I often see people memeing it. I have 3 servers for the 16chan, 1 for the site itself, 1 for the analytics platform (Matomo - FLOSS), and 1 for what will be blog.16chan.xyz. They cost me all together around $45 a month. That price is soon to spike with services I plan on adding (a better CDN and more powerful systems as traffic continues to grow).
Do you think it's healthy to spend so much time on this website?
It makes me happy :^) But maybe not, who knows?
