Too Long; Didn't Read
This is a run-through of setting up a website with Eleventy, a simple static site generator. I made a gallery site meant to showcase graphic artwork. The site was not maintained and, after several years, the site got hacked and had to be taken down. I am interested in alternatives to Wordpress, partially because I’ve never understood the need for a blogging platform with a MYSQL database just to host static content. I also used some Python scripts to create and modify Markdown files and hosted this site on AWS.
