Issue 13 - Self-inflicted debugging, a boatload of Raymond Camden, and a couple of sites

2 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 13 of the 11ty Bundle. 11ty, aka Eleventy, is a "simpler 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 template languages, giving developers the freedom to choose the languages that best suit the needs of their project.

After a major episode of cockpit error, today I bring you Issue 13. Note to self, do NOT add a filter the views of the Airtable database that is used as the view from which you fetch your content. The filtered content will be incomplete. Instead, create a different view. This avoids needless Nunjucks and Javascript debugging of code that has worked for months. A good night's sleep is the best debugging tool.

We've got 7 new posts since the last issue...and apparently, I've managed to miss the vast majority of Eleventy-related posts by Raymond Camden. His blog now boasts 97 posts tagged Eleventy (you can feast on them at that link). Of those, I have only captured a mere 30. I have some work to do, but I'll be adding most, if not all, of the rest of them over the coming weeks.

Note that even without Ray's treasure trove, we've crossed the 600 post milestone.
