Defining Headless and Jamstack

Trying to break down this architecture and techstack is challenging for those who are none technical. In the following page we break down and simplify what Headless is and what the Jamstack can do for you as a medium to large online publication, eCommerce store or content management, how it can deliver benefits and the results you can expect from such a technology.

What is headless and how can it benefit you and your business?

Headless website architecture refers to a website development approach where the frontend (presentation layer) is separated from the backend (content management system). In this architecture, the frontend is built using technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and communicates with the backend through APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to retrieve and display content. The main advantage of this architecture is the ability to easily decouple the presentation layer from the content management system, allowing for greater flexibility and scalability in website development and design.

  1. Flexibility - With headless architecture, the frontend can be developed using a variety of technologies and can be updated independently of the backend.
  2. Improved performance - Headless architecture can improve website performance since the frontend and backend can be optimised separately.
  3. Better scalability - The separation of the frontend and backend allows for easy scaling of individual components, leading to better overall performance as the website grows.
  4. Increased security - By separating the frontend from the backend, headless architecture can reduce the risk of security vulnerabilities in the website.
  5. Improved developer experience - Developers can focus on their area of expertise, whether it’s frontend development or backend development, leading to faster development times and higher quality code.
  6. Easy integration with other system - With APIs, headless architecture can easily integrate with other systems, such as mobile apps or IoT devices

Our Experience with Headless Solutions has generated millions

Integrating a headless architecture had led to expected rapid results and conversions across major, high traffic websites and the reason for so much success has been without doubt the move to a headless solution.

What is Jamstack?

Jamstack (JavaScript, APIs, and Markup) is a modern web development architecture that emphasises the use of client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup. In a JAMstack architecture, the entire website is built using static HTML files that are generated at build time, instead of being dynamically generated on the fly. This approach offers several benefits;

  1. Improved performance - Jamstack websites are fast and responsive, since the static HTML files can be served from a content delivery network (CDN) close to the user.

  2. Increased security - Since JAMstack websites do not rely on server-side code, they are less vulnerable to security threats such as SQL injections or cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

  3. Better scalability - Jamstack websites can easily scale to handle high traffic volumes, since they can be served from a CDN.

  4. Increased developer experience - JAMstack websites can be developed using a wide range of tools and workflows, making it easier for developers to focus on their area of expertise.

  5. Improved collaboration - JAMstack websites can be developed by a team of developers with different skill sets, since the frontend, backend, and infrastructure can be managed separately.

In short, Jamstack is a modern, performant, and secure approach to web development that emphasizes the use of client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup.
