Debugging

Having trouble? Want to see what Eleventy is doing behind the scenes? Use DEBUG mode. We’re taking advantage of the excellent debug package for this. Enable with the DEBUG env variable, either specific to eleventy (DEBUG=Eleventy*) or globally (DEBUG=*):

DEBUG=Eleventy* eleventy

It’s different if you’re on Windows.

This will tell you exactly what directories Eleventy is using for data, includes, input, and output. It’ll tell you what search globs it uses to find your templates and what templates it finds. If you’re having trouble, enable this.

New in v0.3.0 Works great with --dryrun if you want to run Eleventy but not actually write any files.
