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

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

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

“Eleventy is absolutely wonderful. It’s by far the nicest static site generator I’ve used in what feels like forever.” Addy Osmani’s Twitter PhotoAddy Osmani

“Eleventy is almost fascinatingly simple.” Chris Coyier’s Twitter PhotoChris Coyier

“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
