Does my website fall under the Jamstack term

Hi everyone,

I’m seeking some clarification on the term “Jamstack.” I’m still a bit confused about whether my website falls under the Jamstack category or not. In short, I have a traditional monolithic WordPress site that I converted into a static site using an SSG like WP2Static. After generating the static site, I’m serving it from Netlify as well as from my personal web server (statically, for testing reasons).

From what I have read, Jamstack doesn’t exactly have a strict definition (anymore, that is) and is more of an architectural approach than anything. So, I’m wondering if my website can still be considered a Jamstack site, although it doesn’t use any sort of APIs or anything to bring dynamic-like content to the site.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me understand if my site can be considered Jamstack or even “Jamstack-like.”

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Kaz
If you are generating pages via markup (markdown, yaml, json… etc) then I’m confident it could be considered a JAMstack application.

At the end of the day all that matters is that you are creating awesome content… so who cares if it fits into a specific term. The term JAMstack has broadened due to many amazing advances in web technologies and how we treat them – I think it would be unjust to treat the term itself any different from the constantly evolving industry it came from :netliheart:

Hope this gives you some insight :slight_smile:
