The sheer number of processes and tools required for front-end development can often be time-consuming and frustrating to work with, particularly with the pressures of looming deadlines and potential bug-fixes. Add to this the adoption and promotion, by the web community, of new technologies and workflow innovations and it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming to try and tick all the boxes when it comes to a project build.
