Welcome to Issue 17 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.

Just back from a wonderful 2 weeks in Italy. Still not over the jet lag, but I'm coping. I'm headed to San Diego tomorrow to reunite with some other old-timers to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the founding of Stac Electronics. It's hard to believe it's been that long. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.

First up, Zach did a 1-hour-ish video on the topic of Jamstack and what it means and what it could mean. It's a great watch.

And there are 10 new posts and 5 new sites to check out below.

Until next time...

Semi-automated hashtags for syndicated posts

I went out on a limb recently and decided to build a custom collection in Eleventy that aggregates my post tags and link tags (sourced from Matter). These tags then get appended to shared post or link titles when they're syndicated from my site.

Drying up now page templates and normalizing data in Eleventy

My now page consists of a number of similar sections — some bespoke text, a number of media grids and lists. The text is repeated once, the lists are easily templated out in Liquid.js and the media grids are all quite similar.
