    Node is basically back-end Javascript. While powerful alone, almost exclusively you will use a back-end framework like Next.js or Gatsby when using React, and then maybe Nuxt or Gridsome in Vue.

    Among other thoughts, I considered a possibility of migration to a newer tech stack (because I can). Don't get me wrong, I actually love Gridsome (which is underneath my website now). But it's quite obsolete, and it's actually a dead project now.

    One downside of Gridsome is that development seems to have stopped if you look at their github. For that reason I've recently switched my Gridsome clients to Nuxt

    Yes. is specifically designed for it and it lets you generate plain HTML files for most of the part. It's good for small projects in Vue which are mostly static.

    I definitely think Nuxt is worth learning for more than just a static site. However, there is a Gatsby-like Vue framework that focuses on SSG:

    All the Static Site Generators have been in the market for many years. With time, they get new improvements and upgrades as well. While considering SSG frameworks, like Gatsby, Nuxt, Gridsome, Next, and many more have been on the developer’s list for a long time. But when we talk about blazing fast web performance as per core web vital, then we have to do a lot of work in the available frameworks, after connecting a lot of dots (in terms of web performance), but still, we cannot achieve the web performance as per our need if we consider a use case of a large website where 20+ components are in one page.

    Thanks for reading!

    >I'm having trouble wrapping my head around how the website couldn't just be pure 90's HTML with some CSS sprinkled and google js in.

    Oh, how I wish it could just be 90s style HTML and CSS! I'm forever trying to get back to that.

    The website is a static site, but it's built with Gridsome[0], a now-defunct Vue-based static site generator. I wanted to be able to write blog posts and documentation on the site in Markdown, and Gridsome was the easiest way I knew to do that, but in retrospect, it was a big mistake.

    And there shouldn't be that much JS, but there ends up being an annoying amount for managing the shopping cart. At first, I just had buy buttons that took you directly to the Shopify checkout page. And then I added support for buying a quantity other than one. And then users kept asking for a way to support VGA, so I added VGA-to-HDMI adaptors as an optional add-on. And so a shopping cart seems like the kind of thing that shouldn't be that complicated, but there's been a lot of complexity over the years. If I had to do it over again from the very beginning, I'd have just made it a Shopify template.

    >How did so much schedule / money go to "refractoring"? Were they doing back end work like integrating with the mailing list or revamping the store logic or something?

    The refactoring was mixed up in the theme migration. We had a lot of code that was like `class="header-image"` and then a CSS class would add a bunch of CSS rules. They didn't like that, so they spent a lot of time rewriting the CSS to use more utility classes like `mx-1`. That way, they can change things at the theme level, and it filters down into all the elements without having to change each class. I think it was a useful refactoring, but it wasn't worth the cost at the time.
