New development tools

Hyas/Doks now uses Prettier as a code formatter and Vite to preview your project’s build. You can configure Prettier in the .prettierrc.yaml and .prettierignore files in the root of your project. With Vite, when you use the --host flag, you can preview the build on your local network — for example on your mobile phone — here’s how:
