This will compile any files matching valid template file extensions in the current directory into the output folder (defaults to _site).

Writing _site/README/index.html from ./README.md
Wrote 1 file in 0.10 seconds

Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:

“I looked into and actively tried using various static site generators for this project. Eleventy was the only one I could find that gave me the fine-grained control I needed at blazingly fast build times.” Mathias Bynens’s Twitter PhotoMathias Bynens

“Jekyll is dead to me” Andy Bell’s Twitter PhotoAndy Bell

“Eleventy is my fave.” Tatiana Mac’s Twitter PhotoTatiana Mac
