In this video, I’ll not only explain what the JAMstack is (JAMstack explained), but we’ll actually build a sample application with Hugo and Netlify to demonstrate how the JAMstack process works (JAMstack in practice).
What JAMstack is and why it is so popular
Stack in this case denotes the technologies used to build a certain technology.
According to jamstack.org, it denotes that “JAMstack is an architecture designed to make the web faster, more secure, and easier to scale. It builds on many of the tools and workflows which developers love and which bring maximum productivity.”
I guess you have once in a while heard about it and wondered what JAMstack is. In this article, we are going to discuss JAMstack and related topics around it including its importance.
These frameworks enable the building of application much simpler and faster.
They provide amazing tooling and a huge pool of resources to get started and master them.
Similarly, APIs are very essential in making a JAMstack application dynamic.
APIs provides easy communication between services while enabling an entire user experience of your application.
Take for instance algolia (search functionality) and the Vue framework working together in an application to enable easy search functionality in an application.
Hey internet and welcome to another one of my explainer videos, in which we are going to demystify JAMStack. What it is, why to use it and it’s evolution over time.
In this video we discuss the technologies and services that can potentially be used in the JAMstack. This involves @Netlify @DataStax and so many more!
