Jamstack, previously stylized as JAMStack, stands for JavaScript, API and Markup (generated by a static site generator) and was first coined by Mathias Biilmann, CEO of Netlify in 2015.[1] In Jamstack websites, the application logic typically resides on the client side (for example embedded e-commerce checkout that interacts with pre-rendered static content), without being tightly coupled to the back end server. They are mostly served with Git-based CMS or headless CMS.[1][2] Netlify organizes a conference every year called "Popular Jamstack" that is co-hosted amongst others by Vercel and Cloudflare Pages.[3]

The Jamstack is not a framework but is rather defined by Jamstack.org as an architecture pattern.[4]
