Hi, coming from Rails I found Middleman very easy to use. Since version 4 this isn't true anymore, once I'm ready to accept your decision to ditch the asset pipeline in favour of a wealth of external libs.
I failed to find any decent example of Middleman 4 along with the external pipeline plus the usual suspects like Bootstrap, Foundation or else. npm or yarn? Webpack 1 or 2? Hundreds of lines of JS webpack config just to achieve something that used to be a few Ruby statements before? About 200MB node_modules to begin with? This is bizarre.
I'd appreciate any working, minimal and documented example of how a project using Middleman 4 should be structured, given that it's sane to assume people would like to use stuff like jQuery, bootstrap or Foundation. What's my best bet to get started, without any further ado? What's required, what's optional?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Regards
