11ty (Eleventy) Sass Skeleton Starter

5t3ph profile image Stephanie Eckles ใƒป2 min read

After CSS, 11ty (Eleventy) is my favorite thing to talk about and create resources for. I'd like to share my new starting point for kickstarting an 11ty static site with Sass.

This starter is an evolution from my other projects that use 11ty and Sass, including:

This new Sass Skeleton starter features absolutely nothing beyond a base HTML5 template and the essential setup to watch and compile your Sass alongside 11ty.

It also includes minifiying and autoprefixing of styles during postbuild.

You can immediately start using it by generating a new repo from the template.

Resources to extend this and learn 11ty

Learn to build an 11ty site in 20 mins with my egghead video course and see how to add a blog and custom data.

Add auto-generated social media images by following my tutorial

Explore advanced setup of custom data through my tutorial on building a community site

For a more full-featured starter check out my 11ty Netlify Jumpstart (also works for hosts other than Netlify).

What is 11ty? Something like a15y or i18n?

The name of a static site generator ๐Ÿ‘ It allows mixing template languages like Markdown and Nunjucks, and using JS at build time to get or process data or anything else you can use from a package dependency. You can dynamically create static pages from a headless CMS as well. Or, as in this starter, use it basically as a replacement for gulp to create a simple static site. It includes Browsersync by default for hot reload during development.
