Defining the next generation of digital experiences for the web.

What is Power Stack?

Power Stack is an open-source core stack to enable users to create powerful web experiences. It leverages JAMStack technologies and a headless CMS to bring an unrivaled experience and performance to all users.

Using low-code, website editors can easily create and edit pages. Backed by a world-class CMS, Power Stack allows for complex editorial workflows, roles and permissions, and all pages support i18n. All this comes without compromise because with Gatsby your pages remain lightning fast.

Core Principles

At the core of Power Stack, there are some key principles that guide the development of this project.

  • End users come first
  • Integrated decoupled services

  • Extensible management features via workflows and roles
  • Accessible and translatable for all
  • Flexibility that remains secure through Static Site Generation (SSG)
