Introducing Rogue

With Rogue, the SSR configuration will be nearly invisible to you. You don't need a special /pages directory (like Nextjs) or a separate routes.js file (like Afterjs). All you need is the App.js entry point you'd usually have. This means that you can wrap your app in layouts/transitions/providers, etc. the same way you would in a regular React Application, and staying true to React's values, you can organize your code however you like.
