Static Site GravityForms

We’d like to move to a static site model for our WordPress based sites. GravityForms is our go to for form building. Is there a working example of connecting the static site form back to WordPress?

i.e., we build the entire site in WordPress including the forms with GravityForms. We use a plugin to generate static html from the WordPress site (which is active but not publicly available). The static site form submits back to WordPress which records the submission like normal and sends the notifications.

This might be the answer

Breathing new life into an old post … I am just now investigating a static version of my WP site. This approach looks to access the GF API from the static site to post back to the live WP front end.

Tis looks pretty straightforward as long as your forms don’t change often. What are the downsides of this approach?
