Hey There

by Daniel Morgan

This is just a new site, and I'd like to send my appreciation to the folks at @11ty for creating a speedy little framework.

11ty, also known as Eleventy, is a simpler static site generator. It's built with JavaScript and allows you to write your templates using JavaScript, Markdown, Nunjucks, Handlebars, Mustache, EJS, Haml, Pug, and many other templating languages. This flexibility makes it a great choice for many developers.

One of the reasons why 11ty is so fast is because it doesn't come with a lot of the bloat that other static site generators have. It doesn't require a specific build pipeline or a bunch of plugins to work. It's just plain and simple JavaScript, which makes it incredibly fast and efficient.

Another reason for its speed is its simplicity. 11ty doesn't try to do everything. Instead, it focuses on doing one thing well: building websites. This means it doesn't have to load a bunch of unnecessary code, which can slow down a site.

Finally, 11ty uses data files and front matter for managing and injecting site data. This allows for efficient data handling and faster build times.

And thanks to Dan Urbanowicz for the perfect template for this site.
