Install Eleventy Globally

WARNING:
It is not recommended to install Eleventy globally (though it does work fine).

It is preferred to use package.json installation instead. package.json installation will avoid versioning issues if you come back to this project later or decide to use Eleventy on multiple projects that may need different versions.

WARNING:
If you’re planning on deploying your site using a service like Netlify (running a build a deployment server), you must use package.json installation and not global installation.
npm install -g @11ty/eleventy

The above adds an eleventy command that you can use in any directory. When you run Eleventy globally, it might look like this:

eleventy --version
2.0.1
