Migrating a WordPress Site to JAMStack

I've been working with Gridsome and VueJS for a few hobby projects throughout 2019, and was quite impressed with what JAMstacks offered. It intrigued the systematic side of me; the one which is always looking for efficiency, for the next big thing which bridges upcoming and established platforms and produces a user experience like no other. Having always resented the (truthfully, well developed) WordPress editors (both new and classic), the concept of writing blog posts in Markdown and having them compiled to a static website seemed incredibly modern. Imagine blogging without ever having to leave your editor (assuming you're confident in your spelling of course for this example!), and a commit taking that little markdown file to your published blog in such a way that you can't help but say grin in aw.

Introducing My Jamstack Site!

I decided to depart from the tried-and-true LAMP stack (powered WordPress of course) for what appears to be the future of websites, the allure of the shiny and new: JavaScript, Apollo, Markdown. In truth, the later is what truly got me interested in committing to such as stack; editing a post like such as this one in Markdown simply feels ten times better, even compared toWordPress' admittedly fantastic modern editor. Throughout my note-taking life cycles, I've always opted for the ones which supported Markdown and allowed for file exports in the same format.

Markdown test file

Markdown is intended to be as easy-to-read and easy-to-write as is feasible. Readability, however, is emphasized above all else. A Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it's been marked up with tags or formatting instructions.
