Flexible, un-opinionated tools for front end development.
This is a monorepo of a lot of awesome stuff. Everything in
packages/ can be

Juggling a multimodule project over multiple repos is like trying to teach a newborn baby how to ride a bike.
This is quite taboo but let's look at the pros and cons:
