This week, I wrote a bit about whether or not you need build tools.
My stack requires no maintenance, has perfect Lighthouse scores, will never have any security vulnerability, is based on open standards, is portable, has an instant dev loop, has no build step and… will outlive any other stack.
It’s not LAMP, Wordpress, Rails, MEAN, Jamstack… I don’t do CSR (Client-side rendering), SSR (Server Side Rendering), SSG (Static Site Generation)…
My stack is HTML+CSS.
It resonates with me really strongly. I’d recommend reading the whole thing.
