Gridsome – Jamstack framework for Vue.js

Gridsome is a Vue-powered static site generator for building CDN-ready websites for any headless CMS, local files or APIs.

Gridsome makes it simple and fast to build modern websites for any data source.

This is free and open source software.

Features include

  • Enjoy a modern development stack – build websites with modern tools like Vue.js, webpack and Node.js. Get hot-reloading and access to any packages from npm and write CSS in your favorite preprocessor like Sass or Less with auto-prefixing.
  • Simple deployment – no servers. No databases. Only files. Deploy your entire site to a CDN and forget about it.
  • Fast -builds ultra performance into every page by using the PRPL pattern. You get code splitting, asset optimization, progressive images, and link prefetching out of the box. Gridsome sites get almost perfect page speed scores by default.
  • Connect to any CMS or data source – use any CMS or data source for content. Pull data from WordPress, Contentful, local Markdown, or any other headless CMS or APIs and access it with GraphQL in your pages and components.
  • PWA Offline-first architecture – only critical HTML, CSS, and JavaScript get loaded first. The next pages are then prefetched so users can click around incredibly fast without page reloads, even when offline.
  • Get perfect page speed scores – automatically optimizes your frontend to load and perform blazing fast. You get code-splitting, image optimization, lazy-loading, and almost perfect lighthouse scores out-of-the-box.
  • Build future ready websites – uses the power of blazing-fast static site generator, JavaScript and APIs to create stunning dynamic web experiences.
  • Handles thousands to millions of hits without breaking – and no expensive server costs.
  • SEO-friendly – Gridsome sites load as static HTML before they hydrate into fully Vue.js-powered SPAs. This makes it possible for search engines to be able to crawl content and give better SEO ranking, and still have all the power of Vue.js
