11ty is my current favorite static site generator: It’s as simple or as involved as you want it to be, and it exposes a lot of great tools to build things however you like. Building sites with 11ty can be fast but I found myself rebuilding a lot of things and having to struggle setting up an asset build process every time I made a new site. 11in is my attempt at putting together a framework (and a set of extensions) to help reduce that boilerplate and provide a bunch of nice stuff “out of the box.”

By itself, 11in mainly does two things:

  • Provide a robust, fast, modern CSS/JS build process
  • Provide a framework for easily extending 11ty (without ending up with a huge eleventy.config.js)

Fun fact: This site is running on 11in.
