Which projects can I convert to Astro?Section titled Which projects can I convert to Astro?
Many existing sites can be built with Astro. Astro is ideally suited for your existing content-based sites like blogs, landing pages, marketing sites and portfolios. Astro integrates with several popular headless CMSs, and allows you to connect eCommerce shop carts.
Astro allows you to choose between a statically-generated site and server-side rendering (SSR), making it a great replacement for SSGs or for sites that need to fetch some page data on the fly.
