Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:

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

“Eleventy is absolutely wonderful. It’s by far the nicest static site generator I’ve used in what feels like forever.” Addy Osmani’s Twitter PhotoAddy Osmani

“Eleventy + Netlify have become my new workflow for static sites. I think I'm in love.” Mina Markham’s Twitter PhotoMina Markham

“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

“Don’t tell Zach I said it but Eleventy is seeming fresh as hell so far” Mat Marquis’s Twitter PhotoMat Marquis

“Seriously can't remember enjoying using a Static Site Generator this much. Yes Hugo is rapid, but this is all so logical. It feels like it was designed by someone who has been through lots of pain and success using other SSGs.” Phil Hawksworth’s Twitter PhotoPhil Hawksworth

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

“I actually used Eleventy for the first time this week. Loved it.” Paul Lewis’s Twitter PhotoPaul Lewis

Read the replies to: “Fans of Eleventy.... why do you like it better than other static site generators?”

“Just the kind of simple / common sense tool I love. The data/folder hierarchy mechanism is super obvious and elegant.” Heydon Pickering’s Twitter PhotoHeydon Pickering

“Eleventy is almost fascinatingly simple.” Chris Coyier’s Twitter PhotoChris Coyier
