Cloudflare Workers

Cloudflare workers are javascript application that sit on the edge and run there to generate content that is served to the browser. I found it very handy to setup my mta-sts websites entirely with cloudflare, it will never touch my webhost and the webhost need not be aware of the existence of this site at all!

This also provides an amazing opportunity to set up a maintenance page. When the web host is completely down there is only one place where I can setup my website-is-down notice and that is on the cloudflare itself. I tried a few apps and then learnt to code it myself using cloudflare worker! This was a big fix that I was looking forward to from years. You can see my worker in action at
