This repo is the frontend part of the xkcd-excuse.com project. Code for the backend part can be found in xkcd-excuse-generator repo.

Tech

Frontend built using Materialize and some clunky JS.

For backend tech checkout the XKCD excuse generator repo's README.

Infrastructure

Since this is a side project that will obviously never make any money, costs should idealy be minimal. Everything is served behind CloudFlare CDN, even the API that is served from AWS Lambda through AWS API Gateway. Frontend is served on Github Pages.
