A site to deploy
Project 1, which we built in Chapters 1 and 2. If you didn’t follow that process, get a copy of the files from this book’s GitHub repository (https://github.com/PacktPublishing/Eleventy-by-Example/tree/main/project-1). Open the project in a code editor and terminal and move into
/project-1/chapter-2/end for a working 11ty site to deploy.
