Could you provide a concise and non-opinionated bootstrapping?

atlas-connect bootstraps a monstrous thing. Really. From a developer perspective this is a total nightmare. Using React, using Babel for the server code, using cookie-parser, using compression, using helm, using HBS to render a simple hello world with an ancient version of the AUI. I spent a good hour of my life just cleaning up the mess your team left behind because I want two things:

  • express
  • atlassian-connect-express as a middleware set up

And it should work that way, without having your customers pinpoint and debug why on earth they need a hard-dependency on sqlite3, or why all information suddenly dropped because you really depend on morgan to do the job.
Please for the sake of the next developer who would like to use your platform: clean it up.
