Personal Blog on OCI and GitHub


  • Duration: from 2022


I want a blog with the lowest cost while still providing low latency and convenient development.


I build this blog with multiple Jekyll templates which are compiled into multiple static HTML and JavaScript files. I use Terraform to develop the cloud architecture using:

  • Gateway
  • S3 Storage
  • Functions

To automate the build pipeline, I use GitHub Actions to automatically run the Terraform build and deployment.

To reduce costs and latency, I use Cloudflare as a CDN.

Why not directly use GitHub Pages?

  1. It is blocked in mainland China.
  2. For flexible architectures with multiple sites and templates.

Total cost: < $0.05 per month.
