How It Works

Move your blog to a modern architecture you control and own.

You may have noticed the recent movement of people looking to get off Medium. Most of us are motivated by a desire to own our content, have data portability and get more control over how and where our content is displayed and monetized. Most importantly, many of us consider our blog or wesite to be a core part of our online identity and, while Medium offers a fantastic writing experience, it sacrifices other important values. Luckily, the Jamstack modern approach to running websites aligns with these ideals. Stackbit lets you import your blog and turn it into a Jamstack blog in minutes.

Own your data by storing it in a git repo and/or managing it with a Headless CMS, continuously integrate and deploy your website using Netlify and get a design and a Jamstack website provisioned in 60 seconds with Stackbit. You can easily get by with free usage tiers or pay a reasonable fee for a higher level of service in the future. Most importantly, you control your data, how it's deployed and where it's used and you can always switch services without any sacrifice. Get on the Jamstack easily by importing your Medium blog to the Jamstack architecture with Stackbit.

Import Your Medium Blog

Luckily enough Medium has an export tool and we've done everything we can to make our importer support all the edge cases. For now Medium doesn't export (or endorse the scraping of) comments and we don't import drafts.

Pick Your Stack

This is the easy part - pick a Jamstack blog theme, a Static Site Generator (Gatsby is popular) and a Headless CMS (they all have free plans).

Voilà! Your Jamstack Blog is Live 🎉

We stand corrected, this is the easy part. If you're new to the Jamstack we encourage you play with the Headless CMS you chose, everything has been wired for you behind the scenes.
