Building your first Azure Static Web App

One of the more interesting current Web development concepts is Jamstack. Popularized by Web application platform Netlify, it’s a Web application model that uses JavaScript, APIs, and Markup (hence JAM) to deliver static sites that aren’t delivered as server-generated dynamic content. The result is a low-impact way to deliver apps that are built externally and served up by a content delivery network like Azure’s or Cloudflare’s.

Jamstack: a new generation of static Web content

With Jamstack there are no dependencies on app servers or technologies like node.js. Instead there’s only standard markup that can be built and tested anywhere and pushed to your servers as you update both content and code. This model works well with modern, devops-driven build processes, fitting in with CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous delivery) platforms such as GitHub, where collaborative development can happen in code branches before pull requests populate a deployment branch and an automated deployment to your site host.
