Roc is a development toolkit that makes it easier to create web applications and components without the boilerplate fragmentation and complex setup processes. It does this in a modular and extendable way.

Makes it easy to; using existing extensions:

• First class developer experience with hot reloading and Browsersync (

• Best in class build setup using Webpack ( and Babel (

Basically Roc composes some great open source tools and make them easy to use with a streamlined command line interface and configuration/extension system. Roc allows for overriding of every aspect of it, so it does not limit you.
