Eleventy Starter

Netlify Status


Eleventy Starter is a project scaffold for quickly starting a site with:

  • Eleventy for templates and site generation.
  • Webpack for straightforward JS asset bundling.
  • Alpine JS A rugged, minimal framework for composing JavaScript behavior in your markup.
  • Tailwindcss for a utility first CSS workflow.
  • PurgeCSS for optimizing css output.
  • Netlify CLI for Netlify dev pipeline and local replication of the prod environment.

Running locally

# Create your project
npx degit "eastslopestudio/eleventy-starter" my-app && cd my-app

# install the project dependencies
npm install

# run the build and server locally
npm run start

# run the production build
npm run build

Netlify Dev

# Install the Netlify CLI globally
npm install -g netlify-cli
netlify dev

Serverless functions are located in src/functions

A serverless functions pipeline is included via Netlify Dev. By running netlify dev you'll be able to execute any of your serverless functions directly like this:

  • /.netlify/functions/hello

Redirects and proxies

Netlify's Redirects API can provide friendlier URLs as proxies to these URLs.

  • /api/hello


My heartfelt thanks to these people, whom I shamelessly copied code and ideas from:
