Quite pleased with the accessibility improvements I’ve made to my site’s search form – aided enormously by the examples in WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices, which provide a real sense of the various interactions you need to account for when creating such complex components.

Turn Jekyll up to Eleventy

I assemble a heavenly host of cherubs to sing the virtues of the Eleventy static site generator. By looking at how it compares to the familiar Ruby-based Jekyll, I may have you humming its tune for this season’s holiday projects. But will it put you on cloud eleven?

I really want to recommend services like @netlify, but the lesson from history is to avoid pushing one particular company or product. I recommended people use Google once, and look how that turned out.
