Static sites and the JAMStack are growing fast. Front-end devs already get it. It’s fast, secure and as a developer, you get full control over the markup and the design.

Stackbit lets you build and deploy a full JAMstack site, with an SSG and headless CMS in just a few clicks. You can already choose from about a dozen prebuilt themes for Hugo, Jekyll and Gatsby and connect to Forestry, NetlifyCMS, DatoCMS or Contentful. It all happens right in your own repo.

On top of that, Stackbit just released custom themes.
