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

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

“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

“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

“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.” Cody Peterson’s Twitter PhotoCody Peterson

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

“I like Eleventy.

(I hope that was enough to get me on the testimonials page.)” Steve Gardner’s Twitter PhotoSteve Gardner

“Eleventy… makes my life so much easier.” HJ Chen’s Twitter PhotoHJ Chen

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

“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. ❤️” Marco Hengstenberg’s Twitter PhotoMarco Hengstenberg

“I think what's great about Eleventy is how it was able to simplify SSGs to just 2 concepts: data sources and templates.” Matthew Phillips’s Twitter PhotoMatthew Phillips

“Jekyll is dead to me” Default AvatarAndy Bell

“[Eleventy is] a platform that legitimately built things in the way that I thought and worked more than anything else out there, and with every new feature it's like my mind gets read.” Bryan Robinson’s Twitter PhotoBryan Robinson

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

“Easily one of my favorite open source projects ever!” Tyler Sticka’s Twitter PhotoTyler Sticka

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