    Hi Drew,

    The bar to entry is indeed too high! Especially when it doesn't need to be at all. If you're just looking to prototype take a look at a boilerplate I built a while back for React. It's just HTML, CSS and JavaScript. https://github.com/jarsbe/react-starter-kit

    There's nothing worse than getting caught up in tooling and build processes. Before you know it your fleeting idea will be gone before you've even setup! Keeping the system simple is essential.

    If you want something production ready take a look at the webpack version. https://github.com/jarsbe/react-webpack-boilerplate

    Feel free to email me jarsbe @ gmail dot com - I'd be happy to help.
