Yes, it is possible, let's talk about JAM, Jamstack!

Currently designated by “Jamstack”, is a modern approach to creating websites and web applications with features that we already know, enabling better performance, security, and greater scalability. Composed of Javascript, APIs, and Markups (HTML), these are the components that allow you to through Jamstack create fast, secure and dynamic websites.

The main benefit of this modern approach is that it goes to the server the least possible, making the most of the tasks and improving performance and load times (mostly useful for mobile users where bandwidth is not always available). In this way, a website can be delivered statically, like serving HTML from static hosting, but providing dynamic content and an interactive experience through JavaScript.

Let's get to know better each of the Jamstack components


JavaScript in the 90s was a simple scripting language to add interactivity to web pages, today it is the dominant programming language in digital. It's a scripting language that lets you create dynamically update content, control media items, autocomplete text suggestions, animate images, and much more.

Dynamic functionalities are handled by JavaScript. You can use React (Next.js/Gatsby), Angular (Scully), Vue (Nux.js), and Svelte (Sapper).

Where do we use Javascript?

  • Interactive and dynamic websites
  • Mobile applications
  • Back-end and front-end
  • Browser-based solutions


The “A" for Jamstack is for API, and the transition of data takes place in and out of the user's browser through them.

It is through reusable APIs, in which server-side operations are extracted and accessed over HTTPS with JavaScript. Whether by third-party services (such as Netlify CMS, Strapi, Prismic, Ghost), or custom function.


This is what users really see when they access your website or application (mobile or web), and it means that websites are displayed as static HTML files. These can be generated from Markdown (source files) using a Static Website Generator.

Jamstack vs Traditional Web

One of the biggest differences is that the data not coming from the database directly, they stay available statically in CDN. This means that the main difference compared to the traditional web is in the way the data gets to the store. Currently, the only infrastructure you need is a basic webserver to deliver your HTML and JavaScript to the user's browser.

In addition to that, traditional websites have many moving parts that need to be maintained and fixed (as with WordPress, for example). Jamstack sites, on the other hand, benefit from a very small surface area for attacks.


Jamstack enables the rapid development of websites, e-commerce, and other applications in a secure and easily scalable way. Allowing developers to use workflows that support productivity.

Jamstack workflow


In addition to the static nature of a Jamstack application, it facilitates scalability as it causes little or no overhead, and it is an approach that also improves your application's security (as static websites often have a small attack vector).

  • High security
  • Faster performance
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Quickly scalable
  • Reliability and stability
  • Better developer and user experience
  • SEO efficiency
  • Omnichannel approach

And as you can see, Jamstack can be used in a multitude of options, tools, and services!
