Issue 6 - Stats, a book, and a bit more

2 minutes to read

Welcome to Issue 6 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.

Since the last issue (May 1st) I've added 158 posts to the site. There are 114 posts just from this year. We've now got over 500 posts from more than 200 authors. Each post is categorized, and each category is listed with the newest posts firsts. I've added a couple of new categories too. One is "Search." As of this writing, there are 5 good posts on adding search functionality to your Eleventy site.

New to the site, you'll find that for categories that have a direct relation to the Eleventy docs, the first "post" is a link to the relevant doc section, for example the Data Cascade.

THIS JUST IN: On Friday, I received my copy of Bryan Robinson's new book, "Eleventy by Example: Create powerful, performant websites with a static-first strategy." I've only given it a skim so far, but it covers everything from getting started to deployment, illustrating example projects along the way. The book is published by Packt Publishing. Check it out! There's even a free chapter available on the Packt site, all about adding data to your Eleventy site. Finally, Bryan's own blog post about the book release is included in the blog post section below.

Built with Eleventy

Listed below are just a handful of the many sites built with Eleventy. One site on the list has already shown up in the blog post section of an earlier issue. But it's worth a second look because it's so awesome. That would be Grease. It's a beautifully built open-source website starter. I plan to add a set of links to some of the more recent starters in coming issues.
