Is Netlify hosting required?
It's not required, but highly recommended, and is also how the build process is setup to run.
Run 11ty with hot reload at localhost:8080
npm run build
Production build includes minified, autoprefixed CSS and social preview image generation
Use this as the "Publish command" if needed by hosting such as Netlify.
You can file it as an issue.
