The Ultimate Eleventy Template for your blog with a FREE minimalist theme [Open Source]

Yesterday, I've just updated my 11ty Starter code to the latest version with Tailwind CSS 2 and Webpack 5. Built in developer in mind with great tooling with ESLint and Prettier. The template is production-ready with SEO features. It also includes a little bonus with Netlify CMS (optional).

You can test the template at Eleventy Template live demo
