Reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong claimed that Cloudflare is working on a new project, Cloudflare Pages. It is a cloud platform for deploying and hosting JAMstack websites. The new solution will be in competition with Netlify and Vercel. JAMstack is a way to develop and deploy websites at scale, allowing users to take advantage of global edge networks.
Free and premium tiers
Jane Manchun Wong also stated that the new service will allow users to deploy sites with a simple Git commit and it will be integrated with users’ GitHub repository. Thus, users will be able to configure a Node.js build command that can be executed whenever the user changes something in the code. Wong also stated that Cloudflare will offer a free tier for its new service that will allow users to generate 500 builds monthly. Cloudflare removed the documentation site shortly after its screenshots are published by the reverse engineer.

What is JAMstack?
Jamstack is an architecture. It is designed to make the web faster, more secure, and easier to scale. It builds on many of the tools and workflows. It enables sites and applications to be delivered with better confidence and resilience, with its core principles of pre-rendering, and decoupling.
