Issue 5 - LAUNCH DAY!

6 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 5 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.

The 11ty Bundle started out as a series of blog posts on my personal site. The first 4 issues of the 11ty Bundle were published there and they have been migrated to this site. This is the first issue to be published here. You can learn more about how the 11ty Bundle came to be on the About page.

Each issue will contain the following sections: recent releases of official Eleventy repos, links to blog posts from around the web highlighting their use of Eleventy or a feature of Eleventy, a list of selected sites that are built with Eleventy, and a list of official and community resources for learning more about Eleventy.

Some issues will focus on a particular topic (or category). In this issue, we highlight posts from Eleventy adopters who have migrated from other static site generators, tools, and platforms. Other issues might add useful tips or code snippets or selected quotes commenting on Eleventy.

I hope you find this to be a useful resource to help you get the most out of Eleventy. There are more than 300 blog posts across more than 25 categories written by more than 100 authors.

Don't miss an issue. There are two RSS feeds, one is the Blog RSS for posts like the one you're reading now and those in the Blog and a second one, Firehose RSS, which includes all of the categorized posts written by numerous authors.

Feedback is welcome; drop me a line at bob dot monsour at

Migrating This Blog From Jekyll to Eleventy

Jekyll has been powering this site for many years now. It replaced my WordPress setup, and I haven't looked back. Over the last few months, I have become fed up with Jekyll. It's slowing me down. Time to replace it with something new and shiny!

Now with added Eleventy!

Ever since I gave Eleventy a go when I was building the LeedsJS website, I've been a huge fan and advocate, even convincing some people to give it a try out of my sheer enthusiasm for it. I absolutely love the simplicity and flexibility of it, as well as things like data files. I have a whole post talking about this stuff from when I was building the new LeedsJS website. I've been meaning to convert my own site over for a while, and recently took the plunge and decided to do it. As well as giving me the opportunity to dig into Eleventy without a deadline pressing me, it also gave me the chance to make some stylistic changes.
