Back when I was hosting the I Brew My Own Coffee podcast – I had crowd-sourced a list of US Coffee Roasters from a Reddit thread and piped that data into a spreadsheet. Last week I happened across that spreadsheet again and I thought I'd make a little site so folks could have access to the data.
I had just updated my eleventy-boilerplate, so it was a great opportunity to give it a shot from start to finish with the new setup.
In less than 10 minutes I had the data converted to JSON and output within the template grouped by state. With a little bit of styling I was able to launch the site using Netlify in a matter of hours. I love how these tools empower me to build and launch ideas with minimal effort/overhead.
