2 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 21 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.

A new mascot for Eleventy

Say hello to our new little friend, created by David Neal, a very talented artist and long-time Eleventy enthusiast. If you have ideas for its name, please share them on Mastodon.

Another free hosting option

Kinsta, a hosting platform for web apps and sites has announced a free tier for hosting static sites, including support for Eleventy. According to the page describing the features, you can have up to 100 sites, 600 build minutes, and 100GB bandwidth per month per account, and automatic deploys based on pushes to your repositories. I have no dog in this fight, but wanted to share this announcement.

A new front matter option

In the upcoming 3.0 release, there will be a new feature that will be familar to folks using WebC. You can use arbitrary JavaScript in your front matter. You can read more about it in this GitHub discussion thread.

Until next time...

Eleventy Date-only Filter

I noticed recently that the site's stats page displayed the first and last post dates with time information even though the values only contained dates. I created a simple Eleventy Filter to trim them to date only with the format I wanted. This post shows how I did it.
