Ep. 10: Static JSON API's with Jadon Naas

In this months episode, we're joined by Jadon Naas to show us how to create static JSON API's with Eleventy!

Cut the CRUD with a Static JSON API

Learn how to use Eleventy to create a static JSON API for other applications to consume. Static JSON APIs can be a great way to expose data for other apps to consume without having to build, maintain, and serve a backend application or database to Create, Read, Update, or Delete (that is, CRUD) the data. This approach is a good fit for data that needs to be occasionally updated but always available for consumption.
