My motivation for building Gridtastic was a desire to make setting up new Gridsome projects easier. I set up lots of projects for work or to play around, and I kept running into stuff meant to help people new to the framework that was a real nuisance for those who already knew how Gridsome works.
The first command was one to override
index.html, mainly because I couldn’t remember the required boilerplate. After that, I made the
fresh command to remove all the READMEs and the
About component. The biggest thing was adding scaffolding commands and the ability to pull down starter sets. That really sped up the creation of new projects.
