Coronavirus aka “The Roni”

It’s been a minute. John Hopkins created a neat operational dashboard, but the URL is hard to remember. I created a simple redirect:

www.TheRoni.com

I’d never done a static website that just points to a object storage bucket before, but it was remarkably easy.

  1. Register domain
  2. Point cname prefix `www` at c.storage.googleapis.com
  3. create a bucket in GCP called `www.theroni.com`
  4. upload an index.html and a 404.html to said bucket
  5. set `all users` to read storage object access for bucket
  6. setup index.html and 404.html in “website settings” of bucket

Wait 5-10 minutes for DNS to update, boom, works.
