JavaScript for Plone 6 | Johannes Raggam

This is what the PLIP 3211 will deliver, and it’s going to be amazing. Based on what Patternslib 4 already offers, it will feature ES6+ module imports, Webpack, dynamic imports, a simple resource registry, and most importantly: Just add your JavaScript and you’re done.

Jamstack with Plone and Volto | Asko Soukka

A case study in building a new study guide for University of Jyväskylä, using Volto on Plone as a “headless CMS” for managing all the authored content. We use GatsbyJS to build and maintain a study guide site with more than 12 000 pages and growing. While most of the pages are generated from relational data, hundreds of pages are manually authored and maintained using Volto, connected to relational content, and published preserving their original Volto layout.
