What Does Jamstack Mean?

Written by Dan

Jamstack is a web development term that describes a group of static site generators, or SSGs, that work together to create websites.

The term “jamstack” comes from the idea that these different tools can be plugged in and “stacked” together to create a site. The most popular SSGs are Jekyll, Hugo and Next.js. All three of these generators are open source and can be used for free.
