Discussion on: Why I'm using Surge and not GitHub Pages

What I absolutely love about Netlify is that in their .toml file you can duplicate your routes (given you don't have a zillion of them, otherwise it gets cumbersome) and have those serve your entry file. Anything else you can catch with a wildcard, return a 404 status and still display your SPA to handle the error page. Of course an SSG would defeat this purpose, but it's great if you have a very dynamic API driven SPA or the likes. Also Netlify allows you to configure security headers and other nifty bits.
