Tools I use often:
https://github.com/kognise/water.css Classless stylesheet (created by a 13yr old)
https://parceljs.org/ Zero config bundler
https://www.npmjs.com/package/micro Micro node server
https://www.npmjs.com/package/surge Static website hosting that just works - good with SPA’s and virtual routes, also static JSON file hosting.
https://www.npmjs.com/package/serve Lightweight zero config static server with hot reloading
https://www.npmjs.com/package/live-server Not as lightweight, but I offers a little more config than serve, and (i think) does JSON hosting, also does request proxying - get around those CORS challenges
https://github.com/vadimdemedes/ink React for interactive command-line apps
https://css-tricks.com/new-site-html-ipsum/ HTML kitchen sink
https://www.docz.site/ Zero config document frontend
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tools/nginx The easiest way to configure a performant, secure, and stable NGINX server.
