    Howdy!
    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

    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.

    @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

    Oops! @danchristian my apologies, I thought this was the Solid gitter chat, so my answer doesn't apply outside there!

    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!

    Hi, I am not sure if JAMstack is the thing I should use for my project. I am working on a map. The map is made used Mapbox, the website lives on Github and Github pages. My use-case is to load, edit and save from the client side to the server side in JSON. would this easily be possible?
    Daan van Rasmhorst
    @daanvr
    how should I go about it?

    Hey all, just wanted to share this article. We took Ghost CMS, made it headless, deployed on Netlify and created weekly content updates for readers. We're big fans of the JAMstack and this was just this week's experiment: https://snipcart.com/blog/ghost-demo-weekly-newsletter

    Hi all! Just curious what kind of topics you've covered at your meetups? Which topics brought the most interest/least interest? Here's some we've had at the JAMstack Boston meetup so far:

    Thank you!

    how do you guys handle push notifications in a JAM setup?
    is something like Firebase's FCM solution a valid approach?

    Hi JAMstack community. I'm new here and i would submit my example site on jamstack.org website, but i'm not able to create a new brach on website repository, to make a pull request. Whats the best way to submit my example site on jamstack.org repository?

    Thanks for help and support.

    Hi, is lambda function term the same as Cloud Functions or Functions as a Service (FaaS) ?

    Hi all. I've been building PWAs with Firebase_CLI, Javascript and HTML5 for enabling people with mobile devices on law bandwidth (Developing world). However I just found 'jamstacks', is this a suitable technology stack for serving content in the developing world?
    Jan-T. Brinkmann
    @JTBrinkmann

    @QueyeHaach sounds like your use case is well suited for JAMstack, so far. You would benefit from faster load times, better caching and (depending on your CDN provider) more local servers. By having an explicit build step, you might find it easier to pack, minify and compress your assets better (if you're not using something like webpack already).

    You might want to go serverless from there: firebase can be used serverlessly by using Netlify Functions or other FaaS providers, so you'd have to adapt your code if you wanna go serverless. If you do not want, you can keep running your own API server for the database stuff via Firebase CLI, though.

    @QueyeHaach
    @JTBrinkmann Thank you for the great answer +1

    I made a site manager (https://nifty-site-manager.com). I have had it added to staticgen.com, any suggestions on good ways to find potential users? Or people who might write tools with and/or for nsm?
    Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
    @happybeing
    @n-ham_gitlab just had a quick read so hope you are open to feedback. For me it was hard to understand what nsm is or does, and I still only have the gist. I didn't realise it was a CLI tool until I got to the bottom of a very long page. There's a lot to read there, and I think it could be simpler and clearer. 'site manager' is too vague for me to know what it is for or does, and as I say I'm still not clear if it would be useful to me, and I do for your target audience according to your description. Hope that's helpful, it sounds like you have built a useful tool, so I'm interested to understand it. I only looked at the Web page BTW.
    Nick Ham
    @n-ham_gitlab
    @theWebalyst any/all feedback is welcome and appreciated! I had hoped that git-like might give away that it is a command line tool, however I have had a few people suggest it's hard to understand there, so have added that it is a command-line tool to the about at the start, and added "You can clone repositories from code sharing sites like BitBucket, GitHub and GitLab using nsm clone repo-url, build (updated) pages locally using nsm build-updated, then build, commit and push changes online once you are happy using nsm bcp "commit message".". The template files section of the documentation gives a pretty good idea of how to set up a template for various different pages, the the content files section outlines what can be done in content files (on top of using anything like html/css/js/jquery/php/etc. of course). Nsm commands section of documentation outlines the command-line usage of nsm, and installation instructions are in the docs too which is pretty straightforward (download/clone repo, make and make windows/osx/linux-install).

    Glad my comments were helpful. I'll take another look.
