    Serverless Forms

    This project is made for those who need to add custom HTML forms a static page or static website.

    It is a simple nodejs server which forwards all POST submission by email. Inspired by the excellent formspree with the goal to be simpler to install and cheaper to host. No database, 100% server (nodejs), just sends the submissions by email.

    Suggestion: you can automate the management of the subissions with tools like Huginn, node-red, IFTTT, Zappier
