One developer's experience with 11ty's fresh new WebC templating language. How is it migrating from Nunjucks? How well does it work with Web Components technologies? Does it play nice with other tools? Is it ready to adopt at work?
I'm Benny Powers, a web developer from Jerusalem. On weekdays, I make web components and related tools for Red Hat.
Eleventy Style Guide Generator
WebC templating introduces first-class components to Eleventy, with this exciting addition it’s also important to consider how we develop, test, and document the components we build. The Eleventy Style Guide Generator was built for this purpose, to offer a simple and equally first-class tool to automate some of that process. We’ll share how this tool got started, demo how it’s being used on some production sites, and peek into some of the more novel bits that pull it all together.
