Okay, so I have been intending to write this blog for a while now. I was lucky enough to be invited to the beta of Stackbit a while ago and I was absolutely blown away! This is a small write up discussing why I think the JAM Stack is the future of web development and how Stackbit is using it to empower web engineers to their full potential.
So let's get to the basics, what is the JAMStack? Unlike other applications stacks such as LAMP or MEAN, JAMStack is not about specific technologies as it is about how an application is built.
It's 👏 so 👏 easy 👏!
Choose a theme. Stackbit makes it really easy by providing a selection of pre designed themes
Select your site generator
Choose from a wide selection of well known static site generators such as Gatsby and Jekyll.
Select the content management system / cms you want to use, or none. I choose Netlify's CMS because it's lightweight and simple to use.
That's it! No you can upload your content and style it however you please.
