Architecture

Airs architecture
  1. Airs is a static site built with Tachyons, React, Gatsby, and TypeScript.
  2. It declares its own infrastructure using Terraform.
  3. It uses Markdown files to store its content.
  4. Sensitive secrets like Cloudflare authentication tokens are stored in encrypted YAML files using Mozilla SOPS.
  5. It uses Algolia to provide a search bar.
  6. It uses Cloudinary as main multimedia host.
  7. DNS records, cache, custom headers, redirections and firewall are managed by Cloudflare.
  8. The website is hosted on AWS S3.
  9. Ephemeral environments are deployed in web.eph.fluidattacks.com/<branch> so developers can check that everything works as expected before going to production.
