I am a fan of Netlify and auto deployment based on Git but is there any way to create an e-commence site based on Jekyll (creating products), Netlify (hosting) and Stripe for payments.
I’ve seen Snipcart but that’s not what I want. It’s totally not lean and mean or the reason why I left WordPress in the first place.
Snipcart.js, (600kb), snipcart.min.css (25kb) and a jQuery 3.2 (90kb) dependency. That’s plain awful to load on a page without even doing anything of your own theming yet.
Yes, we can Gzip everything but you’d probably still load about 225kb combined and for what? A shopping cart modal with a step by step checkout?
So is there any way to get Stripe to play nice with Jekyll only on Netlify?
I’ve tried to search but there is not much information about this. I know Stripe has an official Ruby checkout gem but I believe your host has to support Ruby on the server to use it right?
