Note from 19 March 2020

My #Eleventy build time is now down to 37 seconds on average! 💪

A few external data fetches, 1087 HTML pages generated, 1608 simple images <img src…> automatically transformed into responsive <img srcset… sizes…>

  1. Some things I wish people mentioned when writing about #Eleventy usage, moreover concerning assets bundling (Sass, JavaScript, etc.):

    • Does it run only once per asset, or once per template where the asset is used?
    • Does it run before or after HTML is generated?
    • Does it manage hashes for cache busting?

    This is really important for sites with many contents/pages, build speed, and site performance.
