Experimental: Reboost is in early development, and some things may change/break before we hit version 1.0.
Only for development build: Reboost is intended to use only on development, for production you've to bundle up your files by yourself using bundlers like Webpack, Rollup, etc.
Run this command in your terminal
npm init @reboost/app
Then it will ask you to choose a template from the available templates.
After that, open the directory where your app is extracted, install dependencies, then run
If you don't want to use the CLI, you can manually create an app.

What it does
When developing a web app, as your number of modules increases, your compile-time slows down, it's a big problem, it takes a lot of precious time which you could have used to develop your app. Since ES2015 (aka ES6) modules are supported natively by browsers. If you can connect (or you can say serve) them up correctly, it will work on browsers without the need for bundling. Here, Reboost does that for you - the serving part. So you can develop your app faster.
