Zach’s ugly mug (his face)

Zach Leatherman

Google Open Source Award for Eleventy

March 23, 2018

Warning: In this post I will be tooting a horn that is my horn. The horn is mine and I will be the one that is tooting it. I know that when there is a horn, the person tooting the horn should ideally not be the person that owns the horn. I would be much more comfortable tooting a horn that is someone else’s horn. But I have been put into this uncomfortable position by someone taking my horn and tooting it. Mostly I just want Eleventy to be useful and this convinces people to try it out. Sorry (not sorry).


Eleventy won a Google award! It’s great validation for the project and I sincerely appreciate it—thank you! Lots of great projects on that list and I’m delighted to see Eleventy mixed in there. 😍

We’re pleased to introduce 2018’s first round of Open Source Peer Bonus winners. First started by the Google Open Source team seven years ago, this program encourages Google employees to express their gratitude to open source contributors.

Twice a year Googlers nominate open source contributors outside of the company for their contributions to open source projects, including those used by Google. Nominees are reviewed by a team of volunteers and the winners receive our heartfelt thanks with a token of our appreciation.
