Jamstack & Headless CMS: Future-oriented websites for companies

In the ever-evolving world of the internet, it is more important than ever to create websites that are fast, secure and easy to manage. In recent years, the Jamstack framework has established itself among web developers as a pioneering, efficient and future-proof technology.  A large number of Jamstack tools are based on open source, which drives innovation at a rapid pace.

At gravima, we recognized this early on and have developed into a Jamstack headless CMS agency in recent years. Jamstack is our preferred WordPress alternative. That's why we rely on this innovative technology to get the best out of it for our customers.

In this article, we'll explore how it works, its advantages over traditional content management systems (CMS) like WordPress and TYPO3, and how Jamstack can be used. At the end, we'll show how we use this technology as a Jamstack agency to create future-proof, modern, flexible and fast websites. These inspire marketing managers, managing directors and everyone who works with them.

What is Jamstack?

Jamstack is a modern web development framework optimized for speed, security and easy scalability. The term "Jamstack" is an acronym for JavaScript, APIs and Markup - the "stack" stands for the combination of the various tools and technologies. Essentially, it is an architecture based on client-side JavaScript applications, reusable APIs and pre-built markup. This combination allows us as web developers to create modern, flexible, fast and secure websites that are ready for the demands of the fast-paced future.

Advantages of Jamstack for your company website

Compared to traditional content management systems such as WordPress and TYPO3, Jamstack offers several key advantages:

  • Speed: Because Jamstack websites are deployed as static files, they tend to be faster and provide a better user experience.
  • Security: By separating the frontend from the backend, Jamstack reduces the attack surface and makes it harder to compromise the site.
  • Scalability: Because Jamstack websites are hosted on CDNs, they can easily scale to handle increasing traffic.
  • Flexibility: Jamstack allows developers to choose from a variety of technologies and tools to build their websites.
  • Easier maintenance: Without complex backend infrastructure and databases, Jamstack websites are easier and less expensive to maintain.

Jamstack & SEO at gravima

As a Google-certified web agency with extensive experience in digital marketing, we know how important good search engine optimization (SEO) is for the success of your website. That's why we make sure that Jamstack websites are SEO-optimized. With fast loading times, an optimized structure and the ability to easily make adjustments for better rankings, Jamstack is instrumental in helping your website move up the Google rankings. At gravima, we combine our SEO knowledge with the benefits of Jamstack to build our clients future-proof, search engine optimized websites that convert well.

The technology and functionality

Unlike traditional monolithic systems such as WordPress and TYPO3, which use server-side applications and databases to dynamically generate websites, Jamstack takes advantage of modern build tools and JavaScript front-end technologies such as React or Angular. Websites are generated in advance and provided as static HTML, CSS and JavaScript files. The resulting files can then be hosted on a content delivery network (CDN) to ensure optimal website performance and availability.

JavaScript plays a crucial role in Jamstack applications as it is used for client-side logic and interaction with APIs. APIs allow developers to access server-side functions and data without having to manage a complex backend infrastructure. Finally, markup allows the creation of web page templates that are populated with content during the build process.


At gravima, we use React, a powerful JavaScript library, to develop interactive and user-friendly Jamstack websites. React enables the creation of reusable UI components and ensures excellent performance. In combination with Jamstack, Next.js and Headless CMS, we optimize the development process and offer our customers flexible and powerful website solutions.


Next.js is a popular open-source framework for React that was developed specifically for Jamstack applications. It offers many powerful features such as server-side rendering, static site generation and API integrations. By using Next.js, we can create fast, scalable and interactive websites that can be easily customized to our clients' needs and improve their website load time / pagespeed.

Headless CMS

A headless CMS is a content management system that focuses on managing content without worrying about the presentation or front-end of the website. This allows for a separation of content and presentation, resulting in easier management and updating of content. At gravima, we integrate headless CMS solutions such as Strapi, Contentful, Storyblok or Sanity into our Jamstack projects to provide our clients with the ability to easily maintain and update their content.
