Welcome to Issue 47 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.

v3.0.0-alpha.11 is here! The latest release of Eleventy canary is out.

Typescript & JSX in the docs. Also coming with alpha.11 are Typescript and JSX support as real live template languages. It's all described in the docs, here for Typescript, and here for JSX.

An updated dev server. The Eleventy Dev Server has been updated to v2.01 and will arrive in Eleventy core with the release of v3.0.0-alpha.11 (not quite yet). Check out the release notes.

More posts 'From the Source'. I did some backfilling of selected posts from Zach's blog and added them the 'From the Source' category. I chose the highlights over the last couple of years, including all the "n millions" download milestones, for n = 2 to 8.

A new 'bundle' item layout here. In case you didn't already notice, I've made some small design changes to the layouts of the bundle posts that make up the site. In short: (1) moved the post date to just below the description, (2) added the number of posts by the author, (3) added a link to the website that is the source of the post (most often, this is the author's website), and (4) added a link to the RSS feed found on that source. You'll see that some of the posts lack the RSS feed link. If yours is one of them, I'd urge you to follow Jim Nielsen's great advice on how to make your RSS feed discoverable. By adding a link to the head of your site, I'll be able to find your feed. If your site has more than one feed, I link to the first one that I find. Here's what the new bundle layout looks like.

If you're wondering how I built this, I wrote about it over on my site.

One more thing... In the last issue, I described some work that I had done to make the workflow for creating content for this site easier. Gory details are described here.

Until next time...

Integrating a (somewhat) custom CMS with Eleventy

I've spent the last, uh, month or so inching my way towards leveraging a CMS to manage the content on this site. It started with improving my self-hosted scrobbling setup, importing yet more of my personal data and then looking around at friendlier options to manage what I'd spun up.
