— That's not true at all. It's the complete opposite. A boilerplate usually is really noob-friendly, since all the "hard" work/code is alrady done. And it can also be used to study the code. Just look at boilerplate like how packages/npm is for Node. Instead of writing, let's say, your own socket module, you can just do a "npm i —save socket.io". A boilerplate is basically the same.
— If you say push this, click that, npm run my website. you will get a crowd of idiots around
