Would you consider offering the ability to add packages to augment the build process for a project? For example, say I needed postcss features for a particular site I'm developing, or image compression, it would be cool if the developer could npm install the requisite packages and have those update the Vapid's build process.

Perhaps, allow developers to create vapid specific packages that depend on useful node packages, a la what gatsby.js does.

@trst Sure, I'm interested to hear more about how you think it might work, and/or what would need to be changed.

What I think would be preferable for development would be to have someway to integrate different packages that augment the build setup, without having to manually add and configure them upstream. So, if my latest project would benefit from imagemin and a responsive image solution, I could add/develop a package that would hook in, something like npm install vapid-imagemin and have a corresponding config file to tweak the settings to my particular project.

My thought was to alleviate too much effort on your upstream part and allow each project to be customised based on its requirement. (e.g., not all projects require IE support, therefore, no reason to bake in certain cssnext plugins, and not every project requires responsive srcsets created on build and so on.)
