For the past few years I’ve been working on a ‘project’ site of my own built with ReactJS and hosted on AWS Amplify. It was born out of a desire to experiment more with Cloud services and implementations.
Over time it’s morphed from one design to another and included different features such as a blog and football archive. The blog was migrated to here, as WP does it so much easier, but I’d kept the football archive going, logging scorers and games results at first, then including the number of cards given to players and more recently an additional game summary and video link.
But that’s where it all went wrong. In my haste to put in more and more, I’ve clearly missed something along the way. Something fairly fundamental too by the looks of it as the app will no longer build on AWS Amplify.
No matter how many roll backs or build log analysis I undertook I wasn’t able to get to the bottom of the error, so sadly he has been retired early. I still have the code running locally and I’ll continue to log the scores for the last few games of this season. But a major refactor will need to be undertaken to resolve it and I’m not sure I’ll keep it on AWS if I do fix it – I may move to GCP instead or even (god forbid) Azure.
