serveis awesome, but seems lacks of maintenance these days, there's some useful fixes & features added to the codebase since it's latest release in Mar 2014, but couldn't get landed to users, it's more than two years by now.
So here is this ongoing
serve, and also an opinionated
serve, which removed support for jade and stylus, for a much smaller installation footprint.
- Doesn't support jade and stylus (Opinionated),
- so comes minimal installation footprint (1.8M vs 15M).
