Modern browsers, combined with recent advancements in web standards like Web Components, ES Modules, and CSS Custom Properties, bring a lot of native power and features to the web browsers we all use now. With less need to put tools in front of your code, Greenwood makes completing your goals easier, faster, and less complicated.
While the web provides a lot out of the box, we want everyone to be able to reach for those additional packages we need that help us achieve our goal of building great things. NodeJS, along with npm, provides a great developer experience and ecosystem to leverage when building web projects.
Greenwood is on a mission to provide the best web development experience, to make sure content is easy to create, and that going live is a breeze. Keeping things simple is a part of that mission, and while we levarge some open source tool to achieve all this, we intend to avoid the meta framework trend and aim keep to a lean(er) core over time.
