Serve ghost post as static post


So I’m running ghost on Google Cloud’s Compute Engine (which is a VM). But sadly compute engine doesn’t support multi-region, so I was wondering, is there any plugins or how can I write a script, that converts ghost post into HTML file while I can use NodeJS script to upload it to Google Cloud Storage where it supports multi-region.

I have a few ideas on part of this function, but I can’t really put it together.

So first idea I came out is set a cron, that use Ghost Public API to retrieve post list and render un-rendered post to static HTML. But where cron means it runs in specific time which is not convenient.

The second idea is to send a POST request to another application when we publish a post where there we render post into HTML then we forward the request to Ghost, but here we required the barrier token where I kinda don’t wanna touch that area.

So I’m asking does ghost render the post before saving it into the database? If not, is it possible to save a static HTML file into cloud storage when the post is published?

Ghost saves content to the database and renders the content using your active theme. I know buster was created to make it possible to use Ghost for static sites, but it might be unmaintained
