StaticKit will continue to function until the end of the year to give users ample time to transition. In most cases, current StaticKit users will be able to upgrade to the new Formspree libraries by updating their package.json file and changing a few component names. The React library and form configuration files are compatible. We’ve documented the process thoroughly in our StaticKit migration guide here.
The promise of the JAMStack is simplicity, lowered maintenance and higher performance. However, “going serverless” isn’t a win if you’re just moving complexity to a bunch of scripts that must be separately developed and maintained. Now Formspree provides a simple workflow for adding many common dynamic functions to your site with just a few lines in a config file. We handle maintenance, spam, integrations, retries with exponential backoff and other thorny issues so you can focus on what makes your website unique.
We hope you’re excited as we are about this new chapter. If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions of services you’d like to integrate into your static site, please let us know below!
