Why would Netlify blog go from Hugo to Eleventy?

They say “to streamline our development process and reduce client-side JavaScript” and sure, maybe Hugo isn’t just right for everyone and the development process is one thing… but what does reducing client-side JS have to do with anything Hugo related?

Eleventy is a Netlify product.


Well. There you have it.

I’m not saying that’s the only reason, though, but it would make sense to use your own stuff.


Yes, Eleventy’s creator has been working for Netlify since 2020, and earlier this year its maintenance became his sole job, much like Rich Harris and Svelte at Vercel.
