🚀 Rocket11ty: A simple 11ty template with Halfmoon CSS

I used the blog system from 11ty/eleventy-base-blog because I'm really not that good with working with 11ty collections.


  • 🦐 Automatic HTML Compression (can save more than 20% bandwidth)
  • 📕 NetlifyCMS for writing blog Posts
  • 🌙 Dark/Light mode and theme provided by Halfmoon
  • 📊 Google & Facebook Analytics (only added if you add a tracking ID because, privacy matters)
  • ⚡ Built-in caching so your users don't have to load pages over and over again.
  • 📱 Mobile Friendly design
  • 💻 Built-in PWA, all you have to do is change a few values and it's up and working!

I've seen many Blogs/websites that are:

  • Too overpriced
  • Websites that over-bloated with widgets, tracking, ads, etc.

So, I made Rocket11ty. A combination of Halfmoon CSS and 11ty/eleventy-base-blog.

I might be late to the conversation but halfmoon is a fun friendly tool to work with that makes building a headless site simple, and has lots of useful features with no real bloat.
Your site is very fast, lives up to the name rocket.
