11tyThe possum is Eleventy’s spirit animal

Eleventy is a simpler static site generator.

Quick Start

echo '# Page header' > README.md

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

Run eleventy --serve to start up a hot-reloading web server. Then open http://localhost:8080/README/ in your web browser of choice to see your Eleventy output.

Don’t take my word for it

Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:

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

“Using Eleventy for two projects: one personal, the other for a high profile org. Just the kind of simple / common sense tool I love. The data/folder hierarchy mechanism is super obvious and elegant.”—@heydonworks Twitter PhotoHeydon Pickering

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

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

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

“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

“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
