DON’T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT 🌈
Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:
“Just the kind of simple / common sense tool I love. The data/folder hierarchy mechanism is super obvious and elegant.” —Heydon Pickering
“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
“Don’t tell Zach I said it but Eleventy is seeming fresh as hell so far” —Mat Marquis
“Eleventy is my fave.” —Tatiana Mac
“Think the reason everyone is loving [Eleventy] so much (myself included) is that it doesn't come with a prescription about data sources or template rendering.” —Brian Leroux
“I heard Eleventy was good” —Lach Zeatherman
“Jekyll is dead to me” —Andy Bell
“Eleventy is absolutely wonderful. It’s by far the nicest static site generator I’ve used in what feels like forever.” —Addy Osmani
“Eleventy is almost fascinatingly simple.” —Chris Coyier
Read the replies to: “Fans of Eleventy.... why do you like it better than other static site generators?”
“Eleventy + Netlify have become my new workflow for static sites. I think I'm in love.” —Mina Markham
“Eleventy is a killer static site generator. That’s all.” —Sara Soueidan
“I actually used Eleventy for the first time this week. Loved it.” —Paul Lewis
“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
“Eleventy and web components go really, really well together.” —Justin Fagnani
…and many more!
