🚫 Not JAM 🍇
❌ Site built with a server-side CMS.
❌ SPA that uses isomorphic rendering to build views on the server at runtime.
❌ Monolithic server-run web app.
Pre-built and served over a CDN
Reduce surface area, leverage third-party services
Cheaper, Easier Scaling
Deploying a stack of files
Better Developer Experience
Loose coupling and separation of controls
Entire Project on a CDN
Distributed (instead of living on a single server) and pushed to the edge
Everything Lives in Git
Install deps with a standard procedure
(No databases to clone, no complex installs)
Modern Build Tools
Markup is prebuilt, content changes won’t go live until you run another build
Re-deploy hundreds of files (all or nothing changes)
Instant Cache Invalidation
Ensure all changes are live
