Is JAMstack the Future?

by Dipti Kumari Digital Marketing
JAMstack is a revolutionary architecture introduced by Mathias Beilman. It is designed to make the web faster, supports the new tools, and also has workflows that are used in modern development. 

JAMstack is a combination of three basic elements: JAvaScript, API, and Markup.

Here is the detailed structure of the three elements, to get what is JAMstack?

JavaScript

Javascript handles the dynamic functionalities. There is no such restriction on which framework or library you must use in javascript.

APIs

Server-side operations are abstracted from reusable APIs and are accessed over HTTPS along with Javascript. These may be third-party services or any custom function.

Markup

Most websites are put as static HTML files and can be generated from source files, such as Markdown, using any static site generator.

A website is actually a program that runs on a web server at all times. Sites running this way needlessly slow down and provide many opportunities for attack, and is also expensive to scale.


Benefits of using JAMstack

Fast Performance

It serves as a pre-built markup and assets over a CDN.

Secure

It is more secure and while using this, no need to worry about server or database vulnerabilities.

Cost-Effective

Web hosting of static files is very cheap or even free.

Better Developer Experience

While using JAMstack front-end developers can focus only on the front end, without being tied to a monolithic architecture. This usually makes quicker and more focused web development.

Scalability

If the website suddenly goes viral and has many active users, the CDN seamlessly compensates accordingly.

As regards the core updates are pushed through Git. This allows rebuilding the site via any tools. Static site generators are very good examples of such tools as they form an important part of the JAMstack web development.

Today World-renowned companies like Mozilla, Nike, are using JAMstack. The reason behind choosing this solution differs. The main factor is to reduce reliance on a single server by means of solving tasks on the client-side and improving performance. These are the benefits of JAMstack architecture.

According to Netlify's survey, typical business uses for JAMstack include consumer software, internal tooling, and enterprise software.

Conclusion:

JAMstack is great for providing fast availability of large websites that serves millions of users yearly. It involves lesser pressure on both the developers and the servers while keeping superfast page load speeds for the end-user. It is a modern web development architecture that is based on client-side JavaScript, uses reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup.
