3 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 27 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.

[UPDATE January 17, 2024]: I forgot to mention the upcoming TheJam.dev conference. It's a FREE, online conference on January 24th and 25th. Check it out. Zach is one of the speakers along with several of more members of the Eleventy community.

Well, we've crossed the 900 post threshold! I've got some ideas for what to do when we cross 1,000, so stay tuned.

A new Introduction to Eleventy has been making the rounds. If you're brand new to Eleventy, it's not a bad place to start. There's not a lot of depth to it, but as it says..."This should be enough to stir some enthusiasm in you to write your own site, or perhaps be enough to put you off." David plans to write some deeper posts and I'll keep my eye out for them.

For those interested, I added webmentions to my personal site and wrote about it. I had shied away from it as many were adding them to their Eleventy sites last year. It looked complicated. Once again, I was wrong...it's quite doable. If you're so inclined, we've got a bunch of posts about them here.

Enjoy the 17 posts and 3 sites to see this week.

Until next time...
