boilerplate code
In computer programming, boilerplate code, or simply boilerplate, is code that you find yourself writing over and over again. An example might be the DOCTYPE, <html> element, <head> element and its contents, and the <body> tags.
Often, we use templates to avoid having to type the boilerplate code repeatedly. Frameworks such as Astro will also automatically generate most of your boilerplate code.
