This is the first time I've heard of the JAMstack that this website talks about. Seems like an interesting trend.
My company is currently implementing this for our blog on our site, and I'm super pumped. I'm CEO and design lead, and while I don't code for paid work (I don't think that is reasonable for all designers to do), I DO think designers need to get closer to code, and certainly more comfortable with things like markdown.
Netlify is generally awesome for static hosting, and makes a whole bunch of stuff cheaper, easier, and faster for our company. Their CMS is one more awesome thing we love about it because now there is a bit more control for our designers and marketers.
I love this, will have to try t out. Can you customise the look of the UI at all?
This is the sort of thing that pops up on DN that makes me feel like less of a designer every day.
Designed with developers in mind - it’s in our DNA.
Quote from that site. Not sure what that has to do with designers. Though, I guess the role of "designer" is just slowly becoming more about designing software systems instead of designing visually.
Or maybe I'm just feeling sour today. Sorry.
A lot of designers code and design and this is another potential tool they can use for themselves or with clients, but I see where you're coming from. This seems more like Hacker News material.
Oh, are we opening this can of worms again?

We had all these conversations about 2-3 years ago. I think people decided to vote what they like in the end, as the DN community was made up of people from all sections of the web-dev world.
