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.
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!
