Issue 2

3 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 2 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.

UPDATED: 2023-04-18 - I have added descriptions to each of the release and blog post entries. These are extracted from the release or blog post page itself as provided by the author.

UPDATED: 2023-04-07 - Releases and Blog posts are now sorted in reverse chronological order. I've updated this and subsequent posts to use Airtable as a data source to ease the process of preparing new issues. This will also make it easier to support user-supplied content down the road.

How I built my own excerpt for Markdown content in Eleventy

I was not really happy with Eleventy's native excerpt solution requiring just a separator and having the excerpt content preserved in the content, without any way to style it differently. So I tried different alternatives, and settled on a solution with some Markdown-it plugins and a bunch of regexes.

Scheduled Eleventy builds on Vercel with cron-triggered GitHub actions
