4 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 32 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.

Registration is now open for the May 9, 2024 11ty conference. See that button at the tippy-top of every page of this site? That takes you directly to the registration.

Today there was yet another Eleventy Meetup. The organizers are so good that the videos of each of the talks are already posted on YouTube:

Another event, held later today was an excellent panel discussion titled What's next for Jamstack...that's a link to the YouTube replay.

I wrote a post about some refactoring of some code on this site. It's called Refactoring by shortcode.

There were 2 side effects of my doing that.

  1. The post items that you see in places like the category listing pages or these blog posts now vary in height as I no longer limit the descriptions to 100 characters. I think it's helpful to have more info before you decide to click, or not. You'll see evidence in the post items listed below.

  2. I used the search here to see how many posts used the word Shortcode in their title. There were 8 of them, so now there is a category dedicated to Shortcodes.

That's all for now...until next time...

Automatic Mastodon post embeds

I use Nicolas Hoizey's GitHub action to syndicate my web activity to Mastodon. Recently, I removed the display of webmentions from my posts after seeing Chris and Robb discuss some privacy concerns around them. Upon seeing David Darnes' mastodon-post web component, I've gone ahead and added it, conditionally, to the end of each of my posts.

Using B2 as a JSON data store

My links page is powered by the Readwise Reader API but because there are, quite reasonably, rate limits in place, I've gone ahead and reduced the page count I fetch on each build and cached older link data from past builds in a B2 bucket.

Setting up image transforms in Eleventy

Eleventy added a transform option to process images in Eleventy v3.0.0-alpha.5 and Image v4.0.1 so, naturally, I had to set it up on my site. If you don't want to read this post, you can check out the full diff for the changes.
