For fun, I also wrote my own serverless app to send the emails. Here are some things it can do:
- Serve a subscribe/unsubscribe page.
- Subscribe to RSS feeds and send new posts to subscribers.
- Serve multiple newsletters from one install (with multiple domains!).
- Handle bounces and complaints automatically.
- Inject unsubscribe link into emails before sending.
- Cost pennies to run.
Here are some things it doesn’t yet do:
- Have any kind of usable interface for configuration.
- Have any documentation whatsoever.
- Good error handling.
If you are interested, you can take a look at the code and try and puzzle it out yourself.
