Eleventy is a simpler static site generator. #
Eleventy uses independent template engines. We don’t want to hold your content hostage. If you decide to use something else later, having your content decoupled in this way will make migration easier.
Eleventy works with multiple template languages. You can pick one or use them all together in a single project:
- HTML (
- Markdown (
- Liquid (
- Nunjucks (
- Handlebars (
- Mustache (
- EJS (
- Haml (
- Pug (
Eleventy is incremental. You don’t need to start an Eleventy project from scratch. Eleventy is flexible enough to allow conversion of only a few templates at a time. Migrate as fast or as slow as you’d like.
Eleventy works great with data—use both front matter and external data files to inject content into templates.

Happy Developers #
“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.”—Phil Hawksworth
“Don’t tell Zach I said it but Eleventy is seeming fresh as hell so far”—Mat Marquis
“Jekyll is dead to me”—Andy Bell
“Just go through moving a project to Eleventy. Never used nunjucks or a static site generator before, but it was so easy. This will make my life so much easier.”—Micah Mills
“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 (again)
