That's right, and always you can use a Yo to fast start a project with some cool modules already included.
— Like composer for php
— I'm using Kraken on my projects. It's working fine. I love their own modules, like confit or meddleware. They are weird but I prefer a json for configuration over a js with code. Because json is data descriptions is more hard to get lost I think. And is easy to separate your environment context.
