The longer I look at boilerplates, build tools, frameworks and ways to make my life as a developer easier, the more I long for the basics.

I’ve also been thinking about the simplicity of developing things on the web recently. Often times i feel like these tools, frameworks or build tools can get in the way more than helping, especially when it comes to trying out ideas quickly. They’re not bad, but they’re not necessary all the time either.
