I wrote an article for Forestry.io about an open source CLI tool called Create Static Site. This tool sets up a new Hugo site with an asset processing pipeline featuring postcss, webpack, babel, and some other goodies.
It’s an opinionated configuration by design; it follows create react app’s philosophy of no configuration. Check out the blog post and give it a try!
Yes, you are right, it is opinionated. Nothing wrong with that I suppose.
My own thoughts:
Do we really want yet another tool in the chain npx - isn’t npm run enough?
Looks like it won’t run under Windows
However, thanks for posting, I will certainly have a look at the script. I’ve not yet found a compelling reason to need a webpack toolchain for my simplistic websites but I anticipate it will happen eventually.
It looks like the latest update has caused some problems. I’ll post in here once it all gets sorted out; feel free to post an issue in the meantime if you’re encountering a problem that hasn’t been brought up in there yet.
