Issue 4

3 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 4 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.

Sneak peek: The next issue will be a SPECIAL issue focused on posts that discuss migration from another static site generator or platform to Eleventy. for an unpaid promo: Bryan Robinson has written a new book called "Eleventy by Example: Learn to create powerful, performant websites with a static-first mentality." It's available for pre-order now and will be released on June 9th. Check it out!
