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

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

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

“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

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

“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
