As an ecommerce platform it became increasingly important to Visualsoft that they share their development plans with customers.
Challenges & Requirements
One aspect of this more transparent strategy meant the creation of a public facing Roadmap site that could be shared with customers. This would provide access to up-to-date information on product direction, a brief summary of individual features and their current status in the development process.
Actions & Outcomes
Using Gridsome and Netlify, it was incredibly quick to put together a website that offered great performance metrics out of the box. Combining a Static Site Generator with Netlify's slick and intuitive integrations with Github deployments we were able to:
- Build & Deploy quickly
- Maintain the site easily
- Provide blazingly fast Performance
Gridsome's tagline is "Fast by default" and it didn't disappoint.
Looking at the performance screenshots taken from web.dev below it's easy to see why Static Site Generators and the JAM Stack are really shaking up the industry.
