Static websites give you all sorts of great benefits. You don’t have to worry about security or scalability. They are simple to cache, cheap to host and a breeze to maintain! But sometimes I miss all the fun things you can do with just a little bit of state! Combining the Cloudflare Pages platform with Durable Objects and the HTMLRewriter API, you can have your cake and eat it too! We’ll replicate a full WordPress experience with comments, top posts, like buttons and a page counter. All on Cloudflare’s free static site hosting platform.
