This setup is a decent starting place to play around with Node, Hapi, and React.

Mullet Stack was created on a Thursday night by Linda Nichols. Name inspiration by Ryan Brunsvold who probably wishes to not be credited on something called "The Mullet Stack."

Mullet Cat Logo design by Lookmai Rattana.

Weyland moved us on up from Gulp/Browserify to Webpack.
