electron-webpack aims to solve, and what it isn't.
electron-webpack is a module
It is not a fully featured boilerplate; it is a single updatable package. It includes many
webpack configurations to help jump-start your development needs. If you are looking for a boilerplate to get started, please see electron-webpack-quick-start.
electron-webpack has a CLI
You can take use of a few useful commands such as running in development and compiling you source code (more info).

electron-webpack you are not restricted to any sort of API abstraction of

webpack configurations with
babel-preset-env and making optimizations specific to the
electron-webpack does its best to not impose or encourage any sort of project structure or build cycle. Just as stated before, this is a module and can be used as tool outside of its CLI.
