Webpack

Picked Angular 2 as framework since Angular CLI made it easy to get started on a self-contained frontend web project with TypeScript for easier development -- thanks to intellisense extensions for Visual Studio Code, hassle-free browser compatibility with the built-in Babel transpiler and packaging with the built-in Webpack configuration.

Switched from Jasmine with Karma that come setup by Angular CLI to use Jest instead, since Jasmine and Karma were very finicky in my setup and had to be reconfigured frequently to run tests properly.

Jest was also easier to integrate into my workflow with Visual Studio Code.

Angular CLI Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Angular CLI?
AngularJS
AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML鈥檚 syntax to express your application鈥檚 components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
Webpack
A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows to load parts for the application on demand. Through "loaders" modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.
Angular 2
It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
React Router
React Router is a complete routing solution designed specifically for React.js. It painlessly synchronizes the components of your application with the URL, with first-class support for nesting, transitions, and server side rendering.
styled-components
Visual primitives for the component age. Use the best bits of ES6 and CSS to style your apps without stress 馃拝
