The JAMstack

With each advancement in web technology, it often feels as though new layers of complexity are introduced. It’s particularly refreshing to introduce a technology that simplifies your world, rather than complicating it.

Enter the JAMstack. Based around Javascript, APIs, and Markup, the aim is to reduce the need for moving parts such as databases and backend infrastructure, which are often unnecessary.

Instead of focusing on specific technologies, a project is said to be built with the JAMstack if:

  1. Dynamic programming is handled by JavaScript running on the client
  2. Server-side activity is abstracted into reusable APIs, accessed over HTTPS with JavaScript
  3. HTML is prebuilt at deploy time

Building and deploying sites for the JAMstack is a pleasant experience, and we’re recommending it as a solution to many of our clients.
