How Decoupled Architectures Can Benefit the Entire Web Team, and Drive User Engagement

Article | July 17, 2020

Most websites visitors will not care whether or not a site they visit is decoupled. But they will care about whether or not the site is usable on their device. Over a decade into the rise of smartphones, many sites still have a poor experience across different screen sizes, device capabilities, and network speeds. In short, many websites struggle to compete with the native applications built specifically for the devices we carry. For the web to remain vibrant over the long-term, people need to regularly choose to visit them over native applications. Decoupled architectures are often more likely to hold the attention of visitors for a variety of reasons. A site built with Gatsby, or another static site generator, is likely to respond nearly instantaneously when a person clicks from one page to the next. Pantheon's own Documentation site was recently rebuilt with Gatsby and it loads so fast that the people visiting are very unlikely to find their attention drifting because of a slow load time.
