Why I am using Eleventy (11ty) for my starter template

Added on by rickthehat to #code-newbies #n00b

I have been a web developer for over 20+ years starting back in the mid-90's and using Eleventy (11ty) is super simple for beginners to start with has been a breath of fresh air.

I HIGHLY recommend if you are new to building websites and want to get your hands dirty, this is the framework for you!

Eleventy is FAST

When building websites, being able to save the file you're working on and see it "LIVE RELOAD" in the browser has been the holy grail for web developer since the mid-90's. Yes, it's true, we have never had this ability until only recently so if you're building a prototype website, a public website, it is a huge blessing to see your work in real-time while developing the site.
