I wrote a sorta-minimalist template for my generative art needs. It's not exactly dependency free, but at least it doesn't pull in a ton of NPM packages!
I think it's just right for my needs, and I hope other people will find it useful, too.
Wrote a bit more about the tiny generative art template on my blog: https://jagtalon.com/2021/02/20/tiny-generative-art-template/
The tiny generative art template is now using Browsersync instead of Python as the local server. Having to refresh the browser every time I change anything gets old pretty quick!
