What is the JAMStack?

JAMStack stands for:

  • JavasScript

  • APIs

  • Markdown

And the idea behind it is that you can build highly reactive, SEO-tuned, content-aware web applications with these three technologies (and HTML + CSS of course).

To be fair, a fourth part also is important: A Static site generator like Gatsby.js or Jekyll. At least that is required to unleash the full power of the JAMStack.
