  • eleventy 🕚⚡️

    A simpler site generator. Transforms a directory of templates (of varying types) into HTML.

    I use 11ty (a static site generator) to generate it. The template source is nunjucks and the blog content is markdown. Everything is stored in a public GitHub repo and built and deployed on Netlify on push to `main`.

    My wife has a similar setup for her blog, 11ty for generation. But, she uses Netlify CMS (now Decap CMS). It's a CMS for static sites that, basically, commits from an editor in an admin section of your site back to your git repository.

    I use Hugo with the papermod theme

    The Crystal Programming Language
