    hi all. I'm trying to use strapi with graphql on heroku. indeed, strapi is working fine, but when it comes to the content-type-builder and content-manager I run into unspecified errors (I can't create a new content type and create data for it). In the related tutorial on how to set it up, it is suggested to use the mLab plugin for database configuration, but I don't do that (I configure my mlab db connection manually). anybody thinks my issue is related to that? furthermore the same strapi instance is running without any errors locally with the same database setup.

    Anyone knows how to read netlify function logs? Ability to do that is being mentioned in a lot of documentation, but I can't find a way to actually do it :)

    Hi all, I'm new to JAM stack and from the site the content focus mostly on client/frontend. Knowing that the A in jam is for API, are there any best practices, recommendations for backend/API developers besides of using JSON as the transport format?

    @Dashon-Hawkins
    @pmlopes Maybe I'm not understanding your question correctly, so excuse me and elaborate to me a bit more. I would look at a couple of things that you need to have a working knowledge of the following: GraphQL, YAML, Node.JS/Express.JS, serverless/AWS Lambda functions, DJango/Python, and Go. I'd also look at Google's PWA docs and better uncerstand service workers. Netlify's docs will probably give you more in depth on th backend as much as Google.They all can be involved in the backend. GraphQL has a different JSON-esque format as it pertains to it's schema. I've seen a few things in CSV. A bit more things in YAML. I just don't know what you are looking to do. I hope that I answered you question somewhat.

    My question was more about focusing on backend / api development. Given that jamstack advocates using PWA apps, CDN for the static resources, if I'm producing APIs to be consumed by these apps, I assume that any json based api / graphql should be OK, but do you have guidelines for say for example, pagination of results using the HTTP range header vs query parameters... so my quite broad question was if you have recommendations for backend or is it just not the scope from jamstack at all...

    @lvrbrtsn_gitlab
    @pmlopes The JAMstack is driven by api's so its definitely in the scope. Since we aren't generating pages server side they are pretty much the lifeblood of any JAMstack app. Any json response should be fine, but I think the community currently favors GraphQL over rest, so take that into consideration. As far as pagination, and the other things, they should follow the long established traditional best practices of API design.

    Hi all, I'm looking for DBaaS or alternatives working with react app and netlify. Is there any good idea?
    Also this is my hobby project. I don't want to pay too much for beginning...

    @yonezawas_gitlab I have been using GraphCMS and enjoying it!

    @yonezawas_gitlab
    @lvrbrtsn_gitlab interesting. But it seems too expensive to me (49usd/month).. Is your project running Developer plan?
    Levi Robertson
    @lvrbrtsn_gitlab
    It is

    Hello! I have a quick question.
    Intro
    I’m running a static site on Netlify (with HugoCMS). It is a blog where I will write articles and I want to be able to read the number of subscribers from social network (facebook, twitter, youtube…).

    Question
    How can I get this data (I guess only option is using their APIs) and how can I display that info in my site (Can I do it without using a backend?)

    Hello
    If I want to use Gatsby +Headless WordPress then How my project will setup on Netlify?
    Do I need different server to host the Wordpress?
    Tony Alves
    @talves
    @amincharoliya yes, you would have Wordpress on a different server
    Amin Charoliya
    @amincharoliya
    Thanks @talves for response

    @soulaimanassikiou Have you considered using Netlify CMS functions (https://www.netlify.com/docs/functions/)?

    Hey, is there a way to restrict authenticated users from accessing specific pages in a static/generated site based on a SAML assertion attribute value (for instance)?

    @grittoa
    @yonezawas_gitlab How about FaunaDB (https://fauna.com)?I haven't used it myself, but seen it in a few tutorials/examples.
    yonezawas
    @yonezawas_gitlab
    @grittoa thanks! 5GB with free plan is a good deal. I hope they have a nice examples.

    @Idosun_twitter Perhaps JSON Web Tokens might do this for you.(https://www.netlify.com/docs/visitor-access-control/#role-based-access-controls-with-jwt-tokens)

    Hello guys ! I need advice for choosing an Open Source self hosted headless CMS, we are planning to build a website similar to : https://www.bestproducts.com/. I've already seen some interesting CMS, like Strapi, Cockpit or Directus. Do you have any advices you can share ? Thank you

    I'd like to start a JAMStack local community on my city, is there a how-to, forms, something, where can I start?
    I've hosted some meetups in the past but would like to have them be about a specific topic, and endorsed by a worldwide community
    Perry
    @PerrySetGo
    Hi @arzafran we are working on refining this process, but for now, you should get started by emailing community@netlify.com I'm the community manager and Netlify and I'll talk through this with you. Be sure to mention where you live :)

    Hi all, I'm working for an education company in Beijing, and I'm trying to solve a problem about student data. Currently all scheduling and student data is handled through a complex series of linked Google spreadsheets, and I'm thinking it wouldn't be too hard to roll out some sort of web app to interact with the data (almost anything would be better than spreadsheets). My question is, what would be a "Jamstack-y" way to store all that data? I know the traditional, straightforward way would be just to stick it in a database. I have some experience setting up a simple blog with hugo (you can see it at josleyn.com), but I don't quite see how it might work for large numbers of students. Does anyone have any suggestions to offer?

    @arzafran Hi Franco! I started the Paris JAMstack meetup a few months back, if you have any questions (topics, logistics, merch, etc…) you can send them my way :)

    @olBlueEyes I assume (https://gohugo.io/templates/data-templates/) doesn't meet your needs?

    I am trying to find some examples of the types of application that wouldn't suit being statically generated but I can't find much out there. Could anyone help me or point me in a better direction?
    Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
    @happybeing
    @danchristian that's a good question and not obvious to me because you can mix static generated sites and dynamic content, especially with Solid where there is a clean separation between data and storage, and where the server is used only for storage (not application logic). So I'm tempted to answer that all types of application would be suitable for static generation on Solid, which is why I'm exploring this with React-static. Only early days so far, but I think it is a good way to go. Are you looking at something specific?
    Dan Christian
    @danchristian
    Obviosuly a blog is a good example of when to use it and something like Facebook is a bad example. But there is a ton of stuff in the middle that I am having a hard time finding out when it is and isn't a good idea. For example, a medium size SASS application that is infrequently accessed.
    Kevin Doocey
    @Doocey
    @danchristian You can always 'mix & match' in terms of usage. The whole site doesn't have to entirely commit to JAMStack methodology, (although it can serve a huge amount of purposes). More transactional applications are probably better suited to a more dynamic setup in most cases of course.
    Dan Christian
    @danchristian
    Hmm, but you would need to make a decison at the start if the applicaiton is Isomorphic (SSR) or if it's static (JAMstack) as this would determine how it's built. At least in Nuxt.js anyway
    Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
    @happybeing
    Oops! @danchristian my apologies, I thought this was the Solid gitter chat, so my answer doesn't apply outside there!

    @kaihendry
    Hi there, is there a way to do fine grained access to say AWS resources on the JAM stack? I have a project https://github.com/kaihendry/vue-aws but I don't think it's possible

    Can anyone recommend a API service to add a forum to a static site? Ideally which supports displaying ads alongside the forum discussions. I have a client with a static site, and they want to add community functionality to increase engagement. I checked https://github.com/automata/awesome-jamstack but there isn't anything listed there.
    Jace
    @jacebenson
    @com_twitter What are the requirements, if its just to add discussions, suggest discus, if they need to start a new post/page well, that gets a bit more tricky.
    Quinn Comendant
    @com_twitter
    @jacebenson The client I'm working with wants a forum where users can create new topics, so yes it would allow starting new "posts". Ideally, something like a SaaS-hosted version of a Discourse API and we can integrate a 100% javascript client interface. I don't know if Discourse has an API or anyone offers a SaaS version of it, but it's the level of community integration we're looking for.

    Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good start to your week. If you don't know me, my name is Perry, I work for Netlify, and I'm currently in the process of building out Netlify's first ever forum! It's not open to the public yet, as we are currently still beta testing things, but when it is, it'll be a fantastic resource to get your technical questions answered and also to connect with likeminded people, make some new friends, hear about new resources and meetups, that kind of thing.

    If this sounds exciting to you - I'd love to add you to our list of people who are getting sneak previews to our community. Ping me here or send me a note to perry@netlify.com and I'll get you added! See you around soon.

    Generally, how much does a front end developer junior working just JAMStack earn?
    Kevin Doocey
    @Doocey
    @BrunoAderaldo As much as they can negotiate for.

    Hello static people. I deployed a site using netlify, the academic theme and cms, but the invite link to create a password for an admin doesnt work. Any ideas?
    Also does chatting here register as activity on github? :P
    Perry
    @PerrySetGo
    Hi everybody - it's Perry again. I just want to let you all that community.netlify.com is open for business and we are getting busy helping people with their Netlify and JAMstack questions there. You can create an account from scratch, or just use your Netlify account to create an account via SSO. Excited to see you there!
