For web developers, setting up a new project can be time-consuming and complicated. Before the project itself even begins, a developer must set up a customised build system, which is difficult to get right, difficult to change and transfer and not nearly as interesting as writing real code. Moreover, the whole thing can take weeks, which pushes back release times and costs money.
The Confit team came up with a solution that would make developers’ lives easier and web projects more efficient. Confit is a Yeomen generator that reduces build set-up time to less than five minutes. By simply asking a series of simple questions about preferable configuration options, Confit generates the build setup tools for you. It’s extendable, reliable and an incredibly simple solution for a very complicated task.
