Digital Ocean App Platform
Digital Ocean released their new App Platform so I thought I’d test it with this blog’s Hugo build since I’m a big fan of Digital Ocean.
I’ve learned a couple things.
First, any submodules must use the
https: protocol. Using
git: doesn’t work. This was confirmed by DO support (which was fast, by the way).
My site won’t build because it times out after 20 minutes. In contrast Netlify takes 3 minutes and Render.com takes 8 minutes. Not sure what can be done to speed things up, but I’m still playing with it.
