Don’t take my word for it #

Listen to what these happy developers are saying about Eleventy:

“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’s Twitter PhotoBrian Leroux

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

“Eleventy is a killer static site generator. That’s all.” Sara Soueidan’s Twitter PhotoSara Soueidan

“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’s Twitter PhotoMathias Bynens

“I actually used Eleventy for the first time this week. Loved it.” Paul Lewis’s Twitter PhotoPaul Lewis

“I heard Eleventy was good” Lach Zeatherman’s Twitter PhotoLach Zeatherman

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

“Eleventy and web components go really, really well together.” Justin Fagnani’s Twitter PhotoJustin Fagnani

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