Statically is a free CDN for images, CSS, JavaScript, and open source.

While free, Statically is powered by multi-CDN technology. This approach is taken to make the project easily accessible from all over the world. Statically will provide the closest server to users from several CDN providers, such as Google Cloud CDN, Amazon CloudFront, Cloudflare, Fastly, and BunnyCDN.

Statically is built for production. It doesn't matter if your web project has more than 1 million daily visitors, Statically is built to handle this kind of giant traffic.

Statically's mission is to make static files easy to manage and fast to deliver. As well as helping developers workflows to improve their projects.

For those of you users of GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket, all public code will automatically be on Statically CDN, you can load it on CDN just by using Statically URL. From there you can create prototypes, demos, and portfolios using Statically CDN and get enterprise-grade CDN performance for free.

To convert a GitHub / GitLab / Bitbucket link to a Statically CDN link, use Convert.
