I found myself working in situations where a build system just can’t be part of my workflow. There are certain limitations to the systems that work with a lot. Looking at trying out new frameworks and building products with sometimes the constraints makes your get creative. When I was trying to boilerplate out a new project I found http-vue-loader. The syntax was simple. You just have to call the plugin and then load .vue files with the plugin. It was a helpful tool to help learn about vue and single file components and how the framework can mold into many different workflows.
