This starter uses Eleventy’s build-time image transformations.

Find more info on https://www.11ty.dev/docs/plugins/image/ and edit settings in config/shortcodes/image.

Syntax time

In the most basic version it contains the path to the image, alt text (can be an empty string if the image is decorative), and may hold a caption.

{% image "path to image", "alt text", "caption text" %}

It defaults to loading = 'lazy', the picture element gets its set of images from widths = [440, 880, 1024, 1360] and compares to a condition of 90vw.

If you want to be very specific, you can pass in manually all the conditions, add null to skip.

The class names are passed in the outer container, the <picture> or <figure> element (<figure> is added if you set a caption).

{% image "path to image", "alt text", "caption text", "eager", "class names", "(min-width:30em) 50vw, 100vw", [200, 400] %}
{% image "path to image", "alt text", null, "eager" %}

Example image with a caption

{% image "./src/assets/images/gallery/asturias-2.jpg", "Close-up of a delicate white flower with a yellow center, surrounded by green leaves", "Jasmine nightshades blooming in July" %}

Example image with all the arguments

{% image "./src/assets/images/gallery/asturias-3.jpg", "A traditional Asturian village with it's raised granaries, surrounded by lush green hills and mountains", null, "lazy", "class-that-does-nothing", "(min-width:30em) 50vw, 100vw", [200, 400] %}

Markdown sytnax

Thanks to the markdown-it-eleventy-img package markdown also has it own image syntax. src is already prepended here, see config/plugins/markdown.js.
