A Markdown renderer on the Compute@Edge platform from Fastly.

The main source file, src/main.rs, contains all the code for the renderer. The content on the server is stored in content/ for convenience.

Deploying Content

Simply use scp to copy the files to the server:

scp -r ./content/* example.com:/var/www-html/edgeblog/

Nginx Configuration

In order to best support this application, it's important to add the following line to Nginx's MIME types configuration:

text/markdown     md;

I also disabled gzip and set the max-age and cache-control headers as follows:

server {
  # ...
  location /edgeblog {
    # To illustrate the source to visitors.
    autoindex on;
    autoindex_exact_size off;
    autoindex_format html;
    autoindex_localtime on;

    # To facilitate tagging.
    gzip off;

    # Cache-Control headers
    expires 1h;
    add_header Cache-Control "public";
