apparently to display this number you need:
- netlify/vercel and aws lambda, so not only do you have potential aws lock-in, but also another platform built on top of it
- a proprietary, hosted-only, nosql database

@Gargron yes, I think it's mostly a tutorial for serverless, but if it's meant as more of an example I think it could be more clear if this is meant to be an example. I'm also not a fan in general of calling this a "modern-day" approach, and how bloated even the static site stack is becoming.
I should add I like the author's blog, they always have well-written posts (especially for CSS), just don't always agree with the stack :p
