Hi, thanks for stopping by. As you can see, I have taken the bold step of rebuilding my site in the wild!
This is just a static holding page for now, and intentionally unstyled to be as accessible as possible, just plain old html
Over time I will be building this site out using 11ty and blogging about what I have learned along the way, along with my decision making process
Don't worry, if you stopped by to find out more about me, it is available at legacy.davidbeesley.co.uk
In the meantime, I can be contacted by email at email@example.com or you can spot me on Twitter at twitter.com/davebeesley
Want to see the code and commits? Head on over to github.com/davebeesley/personal-site
Start (20/02/2020 20:45 GMT/UTC): Started building out new site with a static html file
Update (20/02/2020 21:45 GMT/UTC): I have rebuilt the homepage as a markdown file with the requisit front matter, separated the markup into a layout, and built using 11ty
Update (20/02/2020 21:50 GMT/UTC): In order to allow the site to build on Netlify, I needed to add a
package.json using the command
npm init. Then added netlify as a dev dependency using the command
npm install --save-dev @11ty/eleventy - I have also configured Netlify to build the site with 11ty from the master branch and serve from the compiled
_site directory using the following code in
netlify.toml saved at the root of the site
[build] publish = "_site" command = "eleventy"
Update (20/02/2020 22:05 GMT/UTC): Couldn't resist adding a header and footer
