Amit Lamba
Jamstack = JavaScript, APIs, and Markup. Use established standard technologies to build super fast static websites without sacrificing rich, dynamic features.

Building websites with simple, straightforward standards can feel like a breath of fresh air. Jamstack sites use JavaScript, APIs, and Markup to create fast, dynamic pages without the overhead of heavyweight frameworks. The Jamstack Book is your essential guide to this exciting new web architecture. Written by renowned Jamstack experts Raymond Camden and Brian Rinaldi, it’s filled with real-world projects to develop and hone your skills.

About the Technology

The Jamstack answers your need for site speed and simplicity in development. This modern web architecture combines client-side JavaScript, APIs, and pre-rendered Markup (the JAM in Jamstack) to give developers the quick load times of static websites without forfeiting any dynamic functionality. Secure and easy to maintain, Jamstack sites are naturally optimized for slower mobile connections and for search engines that prioritize speed.

About the book

The Jamstack Book is a comprehensive guide to developing standards-based static websites using JavaScript, APIs, and standard HTML markup. In this hands-on guide, you’ll build a new project each chapter, creating a portfolio of Jamstack-architecture sites that range from a simple blog to an eCommerce store.

Each new project teaches you important skills. You’ll learn how to lay out and generate a site, deploy to the cloud, and add dynamic features like user logins and search functionality. Along the way, you’ll try out a variety of lightweight tools, including Hugo, Jekyll, Eleventy, and Netlify. By the time you’re finished, you’ll be ready to build fast and secure static sites and migrate your existing websites to Jamstack!
