There was a time when backend engineers used to make fun of frontenders and tell them 'you arent a real software engineer', nowadays frontend is getting so complex and cool that even backenders are now starting to learn frontend. I am so happy that because of new tech and frameworks frontend has gained such a massive respect.26
It powers nodejs.org. It has 7.8k stars on Github.
It was installed 5x as much on NPM in the last 4 months as it was in the previous 5 years. https://metalsmith.io
I've been doing a lot of outreach to individual users, websites, and related Github projects, yet community involvement is hard to get by. If you value copy-left or free open-source software and are interested in bloat-free nodejs static site generation or build pipelines, please reach out.
I have a full-time job and am thankful for any help, be it feedback on the Gitter chat: https://gitter.im/metalsmith/... maintaining one of the 15+ core plugins, creating starters or writing blog posts.1
"Well, I used Jekyll, but then switched to Hugo - but then that wasn't cool anymore so, I went with Nuxt, but switched to React, then Gatsby, then Next - and Now I just redid it in 11nty."
"So, did you ever write any blog posts? I thought it was a blog? The only thing you've done for the past 3 years is to update your basic website? That really could have just been HTML?"
(I'm not sure we can trust this guy to work on a legacy project...)9
I've been out of the loop with websites and frontends for a while. Now, is it me or is it just overengineered to make a static website that's not a blog these days?
I mean, I need to make a landing page. 6 sections + footer. And I don't want to end up with a 600+ lines html file. With tailwind possibly.
I've used it a few times, and after 3 years I still get some weird error when installing everything. Maybe it's trivial, but I know shit about ruby. Plus, I don't need ruby for anything else, and the official Docker image just doesn't work, exactly like the quickstart tutorial. 3 years later, same issues.
I like this guy but god, the docs are just unreadable, it's not compatible with tailwind 3.x (or smth) and it's been a pain to build a user-configurable homepage. Plus, it does more than half of the work by itself, Fair enough, it's supposed to be used for blogs.
ANY OTHER "JAMSTACK" BULLSHIT
Looking forward to get the fucking AWS Solutions Architect. Looking even more forward to build my farm.8
Interview: looked like I'm gonna use headless cms and jamstack ecosystem
Actual job: xml server with pike for the backend. Frontend served serverside + vuejs so good luck doing anything reactive without refreshing the page
After complaining I got to work on my tech stack but no signs of jamstack/headless. Even worse experience!2
I thought I posted about this awhile back but I didn't. I'm glad since the story is so much better now.
6 weeks ago: Told I'm going to be on a super fun JAMStack build with lots of sexy animations. Sweet, this will be a fun build!
5 weeks ago: Find out what the timeline on this incredibly ambitious project is. I start raising flags cause everything needs to go PERFECT for this to not blow up and/or turn in to a dumpster fire.
4 weeks ago: Project "kicks off" with a meeting with the client. We find out that they've decided to do another round of revisions on their design comps, but we have what we need for sprint 1. We provide a list of all the assets/information we still need for sprint 1 success.
3 weeks ago: Still waiting on some assets for sprint one, but we're fumbling our way through. Still waiting on the PM to get around to doing their PM job and building out our backlog / gathering requirements for us.
2 weeks ago: Sprint 1's end date comes and goes. Still need assets from the client, I've personally asked them for the same asset 3 different times. Sprint 1 gets extended 1 week.
1 week ago: We deliver sprint 1 page templates, minus the resources we're still waiting for. Get chewed out by the client regarding the pages not looking like their comps (Yeah, no shit sherlock, you never sent us the assets)
This week: Working on Sprint 2 commitments. We have 2x as many page templates to deliver, per developer, as we had the first sprint. Still waiting on Sprint 1 assets. Don't have Sprint 2 assets. Wait, what about the global styles? They still haven't sent those to us yet either.
Requirements? Guess I'll spend valuable dev time tracking those down for myself.
Client? Well, they're pissed off we haven't hit our commitments yet.
Oh well, at least we have a pimple faced, fresh out of college, CS major, with no real development experience rolling on to this cesspool of a project.
Other devs? Well, we're out of fucks to give. Lets just watch this thing burn.
Oh, I forgot to add, we have 17 page templates to deliever between today (2/27) and 3/18. #NoFuckingWay
Sticker post!! Recently got to play with Stackbit, a slick way to spin up JAMStack sites and being a super early beta adopter netted me some sweet stickers.
As a dev stickers always make me giddy like a little kid. So dumb but I love it.
What's your fav dev sticker you've ever Recieved and what's the story behind it??10
haha i get to know so much new things everytime i try web development.
Interestingly, i don't know even the basics of any framework or websites, yet i am a "JAMstack" developer (coz i use mkdocs to maintain a website and am pretty comfortable with static site generators)
how cool is that? XD
After completing the startup, all about api calls;
Supabase as server, netlify calls for storing data into supab, some frontend and stripe as payment method, using webhooks to do some logic behind,
I never thought that I could finish it, now I'm answering questions on Quora about it and doing content for it. Feels odd and want to code AGAIN!2
