How to Handle Forms on Your Static Site (forestry.io)

I recently decided to go with Netlify forms as I already deploy all my sites there. Great post DJ

How has that experience been so far?

Netlify forms work great.

I was up and running within 5 minutes. The hardest part was styling the form.

By using Forestry CMS with Jekyll and hosting the site on Netlify, I have eliminated the need for server side code.

By definition, if you are handling form submission, your site is NOT static. Many ways to implement that functionality including offloading it to a third party but... your site is not static. It is processing form inputs

I’m surprised you didn’t mention Wufoo forms. You can embed forms into your static site using JavaScript. I’ve been using it for a few years now and it’s great.
