Discussion on: What's holding you back from trying Eleventy?

I just tried 11ty this weekend just to see what it is all about. Tried it by myself, read a little bit of documentation and went through 2 'simple blog' tutorials linked in the docs.

Everything was good but something was missing, so I opened your Egghead tutorial on 11ty. It was more useful to me than all other things combined, especially stuff for input/output folders and sass (the whole .eleventy.js config file was just the thing I missed).

Your tutorial helped me to wrap my head around it and then I just tried to do my own thing, everything worked as swiss clock!

Thank you for making short, concise and free tutorial, it was very valuable source for me to learn 11ty fast.

edit: I am mainly using Gatsby, now I have 2 SSG that I like to use which is good and I can use them regarding the requirements and needs of the projects
