Full support for Eleventy

December 5th, 2022 | Major

This release adds full support for Eleventy in CloudCannon. Try Eleventy with your own custom site or with one of our templates. Read our documentation for details on how to configure your Eleventy site for CloudCannon.

We've made some updates to the flow for creating a new site. Helpful suggestions are displayed prominently if the first build fails. Terminal output has been replaced with configuration tips for non-technical editors. Build options are sorted more neatly into accordions.
