🤖 Just a command runner
I end up using Makefiles for many projects that have stages in their execution (e.g. manual or one-off ETL pipelines). It is nice to use as a reference, but I do feel like it's a bastardization at times.
The Just command runner  is very good, but is not as ubiquitous.
A task runner / simpler Make alternative written in Go
go-task is a very good task runner. Better than “just" IMO. I am now using go-task with every project. Right after creating the gitignore, I create the Taskfile.

Template for a self-contained Starbound mod, including a Makefile for PAK building and Workshop uploading
I resisted learning Make because of the clunkiness around it (Tab-indentation? C-specific features? Gross!), but after using it a few times now I've come to appreciate it.
Most recent case was for Starbound mods. The macOS and Linux versions of Starbound don't ship with any built-in tools for uploading mods to the Steam Workshop (unlike Windows, which apparently has a dedicated GUI for it), and I didn't want to have to manually go through a bunch of SteamCMD steps every time I wanted to publish an update, so for my first real mod I put together a Makefile to automatically pack all the files together (using Starbound's included asset_packer CLI tool), populate a metadata.vdf for the Steam Workshop, and run the right steamcmd incantations to get everything up. Once that was reliably working, I condensed everything into a GitHub template repo (https://github.com/YellowApple/Starbound-Mod) and ended up with a pretty straightforward (albeit a bit clunky in spots) universal Makefile:
MODNAME = StarboundMod
A simple build automation tool written in Go
I agree. That's why we use the small grml tool as task/command runner in all our projects.
