I set up manually. If it is a small and quick one, I use parcel. If I think I need more customization and flexibility, I use webpack. I once used pnpm too, but it caused some problems with parcel, so I went back to yarn.

I'm a big fan of Parcel! It's easy enough to get started using Parcel without any sort of starter, but I created one anyways for building out test projects. It uses the Parcel 2 beta which adds all sorts of goodies like fast refresh (improved hot loader) and customizable (but optional) config. This starter is Typescript based, but you can easily just rename the files from .tsx/.ts to .js and everything should work fine. Repo is here:
