Fauna serverless database + Hugo

Has anybody played with this new toy, Fauna Netlify connector?

(in case you’re wondering if this is a shameless plug, no, I am not affiliated with them)

Fauna seems to have a Go driver.

I confess I can’t really wrap my head around some of this serverless stuff, so my question here is, what sort of architectural set up would enable us to add database features to our Hugo + Netlify sites, if that is even a thing?

I don’t think this is useful for a static website generator. More like something to get WordPress running on Netlify :wink: They already have PHP available when creating the site so a job to convert the whole site to a static site (there are plugins for that) and your WordPress install is serverless.
