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:
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.
@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.
Stackbit was released as the JAMstack conf. in London! here's an intro piece on it: https://snipcart.com/blog/stackbit
The platform basically bundles all your tools together in minutes saving tons of time. It's a really, really practical tool.
👋Hello folks! Just a little heads up.
Recently, we created a JAMstack community slack workspace. Initially it was created as the backchannel for the JAMstack Conferences, but it is also becoming a useful hub for more general community content and discussion.
Each JAMstack meetup group is able to create a channel there and it is quietly starting to gather more people after each conference and as more meetups get up and running.
We'll soon start directing people primarily to that destination to find the jamstack community, and link to that from the jamstack.org website.
Naturally, conversation happens where people are most comfortable, so there is no reason to abandon this destination right here. But I wanted to let you know about the slack, and hope you might find it a useful and friendly place to talk about all things JAMstack.
Invites are open via: https://jamstack.org/slack
Hope to see you there!
@NoobTaco - I built a little demo related to this which enables user comments in a static site. It triggers a rebuild after content is submitted (and approved).
It might be a useful reference.
