Issue 18 - Relocation of some WebC recipes...another source of 11ty links...and 1 release, 14 posts, and 10 sites to see.

3 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 18 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.

I happen to get notifications of all things Eleventy on GitHub. One came across from Evan Sheehan (aka, Darth Mall) indicating that he had not renewed the domain and would not be maintaining the site. Knowing that it was a great resource, I decided to clone the repo and host it on my Netlify account. For all the WebC fans, you can find it here. If anyone wants to take it over as a maintainer, please feel free. A read-only version of Evan's repo for the site can be found at

On another resource note, I don't recall how I happened upon this, but Jens Grochtdreis has created a gist of list of 11ty links. There are some duplicates of what I have in the footer of each page here, but I was pleased to see this site listed as one of the recent updates.

On to the meat of the issue...there's 1 release, 14 new posts, and 10 new sites to check out below.

Until next time...

I love the idea of static site generators (sometimes known as SSGs or SSBs – static site builders). They eschew the complexity of modern CMSes such as Wordpress. Instead of server-side code and databases, a static site generator is a script that, when run, transforms a folder of text files and templates into HTML.
