Plugins New in v0.2.13 #

Plugins are custom code that Eleventy can import into a project from an external repository.

List of Official Plugins #

All official plugins live under the @11ty npm organization and plugin names will include the @11ty/ prefix.

Unofficial Plugins #

Adding a Plugin #

Install the plugin through npm. #

npm install @11ty/eleventy-plugin-rss --save

Add the plugin to Eleventy in your config file #

Your config file is probably named .eleventy.js.

Filename .eleventy.js
const pluginRss = require("@11ty/eleventy-plugin-rss");
module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {
eleventyConfig.addPlugin(pluginRss);
};

Plugin Configuration Options New in v0.5.4 #

Use an optional second argument to addPlugin to customize your plugin’s behavior. These options are specific to the plugin. Please consult the plugin’s documentation (e.g. the eleventy-plugin-syntaxhighlight README) to learn what options are available to you.

const pluginSyntaxHighlight = require("@11ty/eleventy-plugin-syntaxhighlight");
module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {
eleventyConfig.addPlugin(pluginSyntaxHighlight, {

// only install the markdown highlighter
templateFormats: ["md"],

init: function({ Prism }) {
// Add your own custom language to Prism!
}
});
};

Namespace the plugin additions #

You can namespace parts of your configuration using eleventyConfig.namespace. This will add a string prefix to all filters, tags, helpers, shortcodes (as of 0.7.0), collections, and transforms.

Filename .eleventy.js
const pluginRss = require("@11ty/eleventy-plugin-rss");
module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {
eleventyConfig.namespace("myPrefix_", () => {
// the rssLastUpdatedDate filter is now myPrefix_rssLastUpdatedDate
eleventyConfig.addPlugin(pluginRss);
});
};
Plugin namespacing is an application feature and should not be used if you are creating your own plugin (in your plugin configuration code). Follow along at Issue #256.
