Don’t take my word for it

Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:

“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.”—@philhawksworth Twitter PhotoPhil Hawksworth

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

“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 Twitter PhotoMathias Bynens

“Eleventy is almost fascinatingly simple.”—@chriscoyier Twitter PhotoChris Coyier

“I actually used Eleventy for the first time this week. Loved it.”—@aerotwist 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.”—@heydonworks Twitter PhotoHeydon Pickering

“Eleventy + Netlify have become my new workflow for static sites. I think I'm in love.”—@MinaMarkham Twitter PhotoMina Markham

“Jekyll is dead to me”—@hankchizljaw Twitter PhotoAndy Bell

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