Don’t just take my word for it. 🌈 Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:

“I really like the flexibity Eleventy offers in comparision to my previous Jekyll build.” @hybrid_alex Twitter PhotoAlex Carpenter

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

“After a day or so tweaking my existing build, here is a preview of the site running on Eleventy. I'm sold! The main thing to me was the ability to run custom JavaScript logic to sort, filter, and augment data in collections.” @eduardoboucas Twitter PhotoEduardo Bouças

“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

“I tried Eleventy last night on a personal project and today we implemented it on a (non-public facing) client project. It's really good.” @codypeterson Twitter PhotoCody Peterson

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

“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

“Holy cow! Eleventy is so crazy simple to work with.” @splitinfinities Twitter PhotoWill Riley

“Eleventy… makes my life so much easier.” @hj_chen Twitter PhotoHJ Chen

“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

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

“I've been digging into Eleventy, a new static site generator. Really like the way it handles pagination!” @jameswillweb Twitter PhotoJames Williamson

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

“Every time I make something with Eleventy it makes me smile. I think that might be to do with its focus on simplicity.” @philhawksworth Twitter PhotoPhil Hawksworth

“Eleventy is my fave.” @TatianaTMac Twitter PhotoTatiana Mac

“Just gave Eleventy a first run/try and I must say it's pretty dang awesome. Especially for someone like me, who is most familiar with HTML and CSS and some JS. ❤️” @nice2meatu Twitter PhotoMarco Hengstenberg

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

“It's clean, elegant, easy to use, and does just enough to be useful without getting in the way. Excellent work 😊” @WebInspectInc Twitter PhotoTimothy Miller

“I actually used Eleventy for the first time this week. Loved it.” @aerotwist Twitter PhotoPaul Lewis

“Just got through moving a project to Eleventy. Never used nunjucks or a static site generator before, but it was so easy. This will make my life so much easier.” @micahmills Twitter PhotoMicah Mills

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