11straps is a simple boilerplate. It combines the static site generator 11ty with the CSS framework Bootstrap 5 and is stitched together with some npm and Gulp magic dust.

You need Node (at least v8+) on your computer. To check if you have node and what version run this command in your terminal:
Download and extract the latest release or checkout the main branch of this repo. Fire up your terminal, go to the new folder and run:
Now you are good to go.
To build your static website for local development run:
npm run build-dev
This will build the static website into the
/dev folder without all the minifiying and purging stuff (<- much faster and a more human friendly code output, but a much bigger package)
To run the build-dev task automatically on file changes run:
npm run watch
That will run a local server from
/dev folder and connects browser sync to it. On changes within the
/src folder it will run the
npm run build-dev command automatically and will refresh your browser.
If you are done with your dev work and happy with it its time to deploy your static website into the wild wild west (www). To build your static website for a prod deployment run:
npm run build
That will output the full site, with purged and minified CSS and minified html. The output will be stored in the
