I spent a short evening bundling up my work so that someone who is coming from other programming backgrounds will be able to start quickly. You can find a link to the skeleton repo here. It uses webpack to bundle your js, and it also includes Bootstrap for ease of use. The build/run commands are all done using the npm task runner, and not an external tool that requires another config. All of the relevant info you need should be highlighted in the README, but let me know if there is anything missing.
