Rolling a Custom Project without Shopify CLI

After getting set up with the Next / Koa starter I found myself wondering "what is the Shopify CLI really doing that I can't do myself?"

As far as I can tell it's just providing:

1. The starter installation <- simple

2. ngrok to tunnel <- simple

3. An auth connection to install the app on my Development store <-- (This is the key one)

My goal is to build a Shopify starter for as I believe it's going to provide a substantially better experience, but i'd also like to have an environment that doesn't require a full Ruby + Devkit installation if it can be helped, but that might just be a pipe dream so let me know!

If someone also has a tech blog on rolling out a custom framework for shopify apps they could share that would be awesome, i'm sure it's been done before
