JAMStack eCommerce

Build lightning-fast commerce websites with modern technology!

What is JAMStack?

JAMStack is a software architecture and philosophy that allows building lightning fast and reliable front-ends. JAMStack stands for: Javascript, APIs, and (HTML) Markup. 


Speed is everything in the world of eCommerce, especially during peak sales seasons. JAMstack websites take care of all the instances where you need some dynamic rendering, like discount information, checkout process, payment, etc. where you would use JavaScript and APIs to do the work, be it custom-built or third party service plugged to your site.

The Building Blocks In a JAMStack Architecture:

JavaScript

JavaScript, often abbreviated as JS, is a popular programming language to develop front-end applications. It provides websites with interactive content like menus, animations, interactive maps, scrolling text, and other types of dynamic content. It is a core technology for modern websites, and works side-by-side with HTML and CSS to provide an enjoyable user experience.

APIs

Server side operations are abstracted into reusable APIs and accessed over HTTPS with JavaScript. APIs allow to decouple front-end from the back-end. Whether it’s add to cart or checkout operation, your application will use JavaScript to make an HTTP request to another service via APIs.

Markup

Websites are served as static HTML files. These can be generated from source files, such as Markdown, using a Static Site Generator.The core HTML or markup is rendered at build time, not runtime. In other words, the HTML is ready to go when the user requests the page, instead of being dynamically produced server-side when the user requests the page.
