If you are subscribed to my newsletter or follow me on Twitter, you probably have noticed my excitement for the new static site generator Eleventy. This very site you are reading is built with Eleventy, and my recent side project Front-end Foundations is built with it as well.

After a few times recreating my ideal folder structure and configuration, I figured it was time to create a boilerplate to get up and running quickly for future projects. So I created my slightly opinionated Eleventy boilerplate.

It is purposely simple, using Nunjchuks as a templating language, and following some of the quick tips to inline minified CSS and JavaScript. I have found this to be a quite enjoyable setup for personal projects and getting a prototype up and running quickly to share with a team when paired with Netlify.

Feel free to check the project out on Github and let me know what you think!
