As a relative novice to the JAMstack platform, I’ve tried to keep some tabs on what’s going on since the whole WordPress vs JAMstack debate went into high gear. I did get to interview Matt Biilmann during this period and learned more about the economy and platform. For ongoing JAMStack updates JAMstacked is my go to newsletter (n.b. I should make a list of newsletters like the The Podcast List and TheHost List). I’m cribbing a couple items from a recent newsletter.


You don’t need an intergalactic bounty hunter to fight bad guys. iThemes Security Pro will secure and protect your WordPress sites from the wretched hive of scum and villainy across the internet! Prevent hacks, security breaches, malware and more. This is the way.


Crib number one, Web Almanac, a fascinating project in its own right, Part III Chapter 17 Jamstack: “More than 0.7% of web pages are powered by Jamstack and breaks down to 0.72% on desktop, up from 0.40% in 2019, and 0.68% on mobile, up from 0.27% in 2019.”

Crib number two, you knew these tools would start appearing and I believe the growth in migration tools (to and from WordPress) will be huge in 2021, Smashing Magazine, How To Migrate From WordPress To The Eleventy Static Site Generator: “You don’t have to convert your entire site over all at once, either. If you have a complicated setup, you might start small and see how you feel about static site generation before putting together a plan to solve something at an enterprise scale. You can also keep using WordPress as a best-in-class headless content management system and use an SSG to serve WordPress content.”
