Welcome to Issue 42 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.

I had some downtime. While we're down in So Cal visiting our son, I had a little downtime, so I thought I'd put this issue out shortly before the 11ty conference to get everyone jazzed up.

11ty conference is TOMRROW, May 9th! Here's the schedule of talks. It's FREE, single-track, and virtual. If you've waited until the last minute, well...the last minute has finally arrived. Now's the time to register.

Some releasings. See below for some new releases. We're on the verge of 3.0! Zach will be giving a talk titled "The Future of 11ty" described as "A talk about the current state of the 11ty project, new tricks and releases, and where we’re going next." I'm looking forward to that!

An 11ty Firefox profiler. Noted on the Discord server, Flo published an npm package "to visualize how Eleventy spends time when building my website". I haven't tried it, but it looks interesting.

Another icon plugin It was brought to my attention that uncenter had also produced an icon-access package called eleventy-plugin-icons that you can use with a wide variety of icon sets, beyond the Lucide icons that I referred to in the last issue. Check it out! And like last issue's plugin, you can use shortcodes like this {% icon "star" %}. Pretty cool! I'd like to add that uncenter is among the most prolific supporters on the Discord server, always ready to help out. And he's currently a high school student. I think he's going to have an amazing future.

Until next time...

I've spent a while hosting and fetching images from bunny.net when my 11ty builds. I had multiple pull zones configured and wanted to leverage bunny.net's transforms, but the pricing of $15/month per zone wasn't feasible.
