It has been a breeze to setup so far (aside from the initial learning curve of dev stack comprised of pieces that I initially had no experience with), and seems to perform quite well.

In fact, I have made no effort to optimize any part of the project so far, but have the goal of implementing most every performance enhancement I can think of, from bundling and minification to async programming, and perhaps even some caching or memoization of some of the more frequently performed functions.

Additionally, I know the presentation of the site is in rough shape, but I have a to-do list a mile long which I am working on daily. I had to rush it out!
