As I started to think about blogging again, I began looking at options for hosting, CMS frameworks, static site generators, etc. Eleventy has been in the mainstream for sometime now, and I've heard nothing but good things about it. I figured I should give it a shot.

There are no shortage of examples for using Eleventy, but I particularly found Andy Bell’s Hebra starter kit, as well as the Eleventy Base Blog to be excellent resources. I'm using Nunjucks for templating. It more or less feels like Liquid which I'm familiar with from having used Jekyll, as well as creating State Motto Prints.

In the course of an afternoon, I was able to put together the bones of this redesign. Over the past week, during my spare time, I've been adding polish, and getting deployments working with Github Pages. I'll continue to make tweaks here and there, but overall I feel good about it.
