Sami Keijonen shows how to use WordPress and Eleventy together with the block editor “as usual” on the back end but with the front end served by Eleventy. 💡
The main reasons for doing this, according to Sami, are “Security. Scale. Performance.” He also notes, “I have been playing around with WordPress for a long time. It saves me back-end developing time. I’ve been pretty happy about block editor myself.”
So if you’re getting comfortable with Gutenberg and want a fast front end, this is an option.
