Getting started with eleventy.js

Earlier in the year I’d come across Josh Cunningham and his blog on converting from WordPress to 11ty

I found Phil Hawksworth’s FreeCodeCamp course on JAMStack to be excellent, where he used Eleventy to show off the characteristics of a JAMStack site.

Recently I’ve watched Bryan Robinson’s YouTube series - Create an Eleventy Static Site Generator Theme from a Free HTML Theme, and found his GitHub project with the sample code.

I’d been using Hugo to power this site for a year or so. Although I’d enjoyed using it, I was on the lookout for an Eleventy them. From the list of starter sites I found one with perfect Lighthouse scores in four categories, and was able to port my content across in just a couple of hours.
