A plain and minimalistic "Plain Web Standards" template (PWS) was released: https://github.com/adambien/pws.
To create a project you have to:
- Install browsersync
git clone https://github.com/AdamBien/pws
browser-sync src -f src --no-notify
This minimalistic "quickstarter" is used in most of my explanatory web screencasts https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxU9yM-_yPs_B-kaWK0c44KgyWAre4hCH and POCs.
For more serious projects checkout the Web Components, lit-html and redux quickstarter.
