Trying to build a new site for puppyrey.online, but torn between pre-built, easy-to-use, no-fun platforms like Wordpress vs DIY oddness like 11ty.io or gatsby.js.

Lots of love, lately, for 11ty but it sort-of makes me crazy. So much nesting of templates/_includes/layouts/partials. So many people are used to this, but I basically started at ES6 and React/JSX. Anything that looks like this makes my head hurt

{% blah %}
    <pleh>{% data.pleh %}</pleh>;
    {{ include blah.partial }}
{% endblah %}

I think I’ll probably end up doing it with Gatsby, again, but starting from scratch rather than trying to upgrade from an older v1 starter.
