JamStack is a web development architecture that uses pre-built, serverless components to build fast, scalable websites.

JamStack is not a specific technology or framework, but rather a new way of thinking about building web applications. By decoupling the frontend from the backend, JamStack applications can be built using a variety of static site generators, headless CMSs, and serverless functions.
JamStack applications are typically much faster and more scalable than traditional web applications, and can be deployed to a variety of hosting platforms.
Traditional CMS like WordPress rely on plugins to load on the client's browser which makes it slow and results in bad customer experience.
NextJs is the most popular static site generator as it provides prebuilt optimizations on the go.
Modern hosting platforms like Vercel and Netlify offer one click deployments.
Jamstack relies on APIs (Application platform interface) for fetching useful data. The benefit of this approach is that often times developers don't need to construct their own backend. These API calls can be performed on the server side as well as client side.
NextJs gives developers full customizability to access CSR, SSR and SSG.
At BoomLabs, we use NextJs for building websites of your dream. We deploy these sites on Vercel cutting down any headache of maintainance. We also use Hygraph API for the blog creation. For more, Contact Us!
