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

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

“Eleventy is my fave.” Tatiana Mac’s Twitter PhotoTatiana Mac

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

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

“Jekyll is dead to me” Andy Bell’s Twitter PhotoAndy Bell

“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 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
