Boilerplate Code - Starter projects in React, Vue, Python, Full-Stack

Hello coders,

I just finished this curated list with handcrafted boilerplate code for developers to help them start their projects. I'm using constantly these starters, to kick off faster small projects coded in React, Vue, and Python. PHP is not present anymore in my development, but a few items were added just to have a complete list. The list will have a few items per category, in order to remain relevant for the audience.

Thank you! Content provided by App Generator.

What is a Boilerplate

In programming, boilerplate code is a piece of software that can be reused over and over without changing a single line of code. The whole idea behind a starter (sometimes boilerplate code) is to skip coding that piece of code common to many projects.

I am also looking for Node/TS/React/Vue (REST or GraphQL) starters and boilerplates.
I did not find any so far, but noticed NestJS and more recently FoalTS.
Frontend side, i my ideal setup would be CRA/VueCLI of course, but with MaterialUI/Vuetify (M-UI is now TS-based, and Vuetify provides an "Ć -la-carte" builder).

Sidenote: i heard lot of issues with Next, something related to their ankward routing (?). On other hand, poeple are praising Nuxt.
