I’ve now been using Eleventy
for my site for a little over a month and I have to say I’m happy I made the change. I’ve continued writing. I’ve added some features, tweaked some things here and there, almost all has been good. I have run into a few hiccups, mostly of my own making, but highly doubt I’d ever consider going back at this point.
Over the course of the last month or so, I began the process of converting my site from Next.js to 11ty. It was actually a pretty straightforward process and I’m happy with the result. I figure I’ll share some of the gotchas and the challenges that I faced moving my various pages over.
You might have noticed some changes to the site. That’s expected as it is now running on 11ty
I think at this point, my plan is to rebuild my blog with Eleventy
. Playing around with it I feel like it’s the simplest tool to do what I need. I still have a lot to learn with it, but I’m hoping that it will be the platform everything I’ve read says it is.
I’ve toyed with the idea over the last year about possibly moving away
from using Next.js for my website. A recent post on Mastodon
from Zach Leatherman gave me a little bit more of a push.
