Why is static the future? How do you define “static”? Read this deep dive from Josh Comeau to find out…
The term “static” can be a little overloaded, and occasionally a little misleading. Here’s how I’d define it:
“A static website is a website where the initial HTML is prepared ahead of time, not dynamically generated by a server on request.”
When you make a request to this website, for example, Netlify serves pre-generated HTML to you. I don’t have a Node server dynamically rendering HTML documents on-the-fly.
