At Jambaree, we are Gatsby and NextJS developers who are in a unique position to combine the familiarity of a WordPress backend with the speed, stability, and flexibility of Gatsby/NextJS statically built front-end.
Headless WordPress is like it sounds. We essentially cut the head off WordPress (I know that sounds gory, but please bear with us), where we only use the WordPress backend as the content management system (i.e. the admin dashboard where you make updates to the site). We do not the WordPress front end (what your users see). In our case, we’ve pioneered a way to combine the familiarity of the WordPress backend with a React-based Jamstack front end. There are various headless CMS platforms you can use, but with WordPress being the leading CMS in the world, it’s the obvious choice for a seamless upgrade to a front-end built in Jamstack.
In 2022, over 810 million websites use WordPress as a host. That’s over 43.2% of all websites on the internet. People are comfortable with the familiarity of a WordPress backend when it comes to managing their content, including blog and site updates – but they’re slower and less reliable in the front end. Building sites using Headless WordPress allows us to reap the benefits of the Jamstack front end and build beautiful, lightning-fast, secure websites, while maintaining the ease of use of the WordPress back end.
At Jambaree we’ve adapted many of the world’s most popular WordPress plugins to work with our Gatsby and NextJS development. This is part of our secret sauce. Some of the plugins include:
