Added Folder Selection My New Post Utility

Posted: February 6, 2024 | Categories: Eleventy, Node.js

I started working on an Eleventy-based documentation site recently and noticed an issue with my Eleventy New Post. For this site, I planned to use a separate folder under src/posts for each product being documented on the site. When creating a new post using the utility, I wanted to select the target folder as part of the new post creation process like this:

┌───────────────────┐
│                   │
│   11ty New Post   │
│                   │
└───────────────────┘

√ Enter a title for the post: ... Bonfire Planning
√ Select one or more categories from the list below: » People
? Select the target folder for the new post: » - Use arrow-keys. Return to submit.
>   src\posts
    src\posts\Eleventy
    src\posts\Delphi
    src\posts\Web

With this modification, you can select the posts folder (controlled through a configuration setting for the utility) or any of the sub-folders underneath the posts folder as shown in the example.
