Thoughts on our new 11ty website

Give 11ty static generator a try - easy to edit, fast loading and simple to simple to deploy.

We refresh our website frequently, and I had been toying with the idea of using Nuxt 3 when I came across 11ty. I had used Hugo and Jekyll before, but this was new to me, and I installed it excitedly.

All I can say is... NICE.

It's been a pleasure, and I'm excited to see where else we can go with this. The website itself looks fantastic, and the 11ty developer documentation is excellent, making it easy to get started with.

My biggest concern from the get-go was, "What if I needed to use something that wasn't in the 11ty framework and had to switch back?" but this hasn't been the case, and there are plenty of ways to extend it.

We'll continue to use 11ty, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a static site generator, especially if you're a developer and tech-savvy business owner and don't mind rolling up your sleeves.
