Besides my many other questions I have an important query regarding SSG’s and eCommerce. Whilst I can see a lot of benefits with static site generators such as speed, security and simplicity, I am a little confused how anyone would use these stacks, in particular the JAMstack to create an eCommerce website.
For me it would work if you had only 10-1000 products but if you had more, I dont know. I have 50000 variations and about 800 products. How would this work in the context of the JAMstack? and how would we update our site? Currently we update on the fly adding products, variations ect in Woo-commerce by copying already configured products, changing images, prices, tags ect then publishing them.
If we had 50000 products the build time would by huge. Would we have to schedule weekly builds? Which to be fair is something we should do but it is too complicated with Woo to bother
I am currently looking at Snipcart/reaction commerce/Motlin???
Any thoughts or comments
