Modern, Crazy Fast, Ridiculously Easy and Amazingly Powerful Flat-File CMS powered by PHP, Markdown, Twig, and Symfony
One of my blog articles got on the front page of HN a while ago: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=29185971
Now, the blog held out fine, because it was based on Grav, which means that it ends up being a bunch of flat files: https://getgrav.org/
The blog actually held up pretty fine and didn't go down, which is especially interesting when you consider that I had capped the container that it was running in to 512M of RAM at max and also 0.75 CPU cores, just so it wouldn't slow down the entire node (can't really afford to have a separate server for it).
So in essence, I think that static files can be served really well with limited resources, but once you throw complicated PHP apps (think WordPress), insufficient caching and also database access (especially with any sub-optimally written code) as well as perhaps even something like mod_php instead of fpm, things can indeed go wrong.
I've seen enterprise projects struggle with 100 RPM due to exceedingly poorly written data fetching, N+1 problems and developers not knowing how to avoid running into issues like that or outright not caring because of the system being an internal one and the infrastructure having resources to waste.
Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
Look forward to meeting the future Full Stack Prompt engineers
