I've heard good things about it. I would use it if I understood what static site generators are.

If you have ever used Gulp or Grunt, you may find it fills a similar need, except even further simplifying the build process. It includes BrowserSync out of the box to give you hot-reload of your local server on file save. For a definition, I think the 11ty docs actually provide a great overview of static sites, as well as the related term "Jamstack" and some other terms involved in the static process.
