Issue 11 - Take the survey, a few new posts, a handful of oldies, and a couple of sites

2 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 11 of the 11ty Bundle. 11ty, aka Eleventy, is a static site generator that is designed to be simple, flexible, and highly customizable. It is built on Node.js and allows developers to create websites by transforming templates and data into static HTML files. It supports multiple templating languages, including HTML, Markdown, Nunjucks, Liquid, and more, which gives developers the freedom to choose the languages they are most comfortable with or that best suit their project's needs.

If you haven't already taken the Eleventy Community Survey, please do so (if you have, thank you). It's important to show your support for the project and to help Zach make decisions about its future. Take the survey. For more details, see Zach's post.

This issue has 4 new blog posts that came out since the last issue. I also found a handful of older ones for this issue.

I've got just two new sites for this issue. And I'm thinking that the Eleventy Leaderboards site is a much better source of sites built with Eleventy. As a result, unless I come across one or more compelling new sites, the Built with Eleventy section will not be included.

I will continue to list releases when they occur, though there are no new ones to report this issue.

Funny things...since adding a contact form to this site, I've received two inputs, both asking that I integrate a 3rd party service, one for using audio to read the blog posts aloud, and the second to replace Netlify forms with another service. I respectfully declined both. [UPDATE January 25, 2024:] I have since removed the contact form.

Thanks for reading...and for taking the survey.

Fetching webmentions with Netlify and Eleventy Edge

Sadly, I'm not too good at documenting what I'm sometimes building in the little free time that I have. At the end of last year, I implemented an interesting feature on this site, but never wrote about it.

Displaying listening data from Apple Music using MusicKit.js

Up until now my now page has sourced music data from (and may well again). But, in the interest in experimenting a bit, I've tried my hand at rewriting that part of the page to leverage data from Apple Music, using MusicKit.js instead.
