Awesome project! have you tried it with any other libraries like maybe Angular?

I haven't tried Angular in particular yet, but since the FileSystemWebController can serve any static file, I'm pretty confident it should work for pre-built Angular projects, Elm, Vue, Ember.js or any other framework, too. I mainly choose React because I didn't want to build the proof of concept in the example folder before running webxcel and Angular seemed a bit overkill for such a small demo.

Getting the angular-cli's webpack-dev-server running with webxcel is somewhat different though, but it should work nevertheless (the worst case I could imagine is proxying both servers with nginx, but that's a non-issue as well).
