Jamstack, stands for Javascript, API and Markup (generated by a static site generator)

In the Server side rendering mode, we know we need to run a Node web server to render React or Vue component to HTML on the server side.

How about this way:

  1. In the build stage, we try to render React or Vue component to static HTML (seems like static site generate)
  2. During the build stage, if needed, the Node.js app also send request to the API backend to fetch data.
  3. And then, deploy the built HTML to the CDN network.
  4. The built app will use Javascript and API to talk to backend service, to enable dynamic content on some pages

Jamstack Workflow

Web app built with Jamstack is very fast (because of CDN, and the prebuilt HTML) and is very good option for many CMS application.

For example, many Wordpress applications now ues Jamstack since it is more fast and secure.
