Each time I develop LWCs I feel like I'm reinventing the wheel with wrapping apex requests in simpler functions or by providing custom error handling (with showing toasts etc.).

Maybe there are some utility-like projects (like Apache Commons for Java) for LWC already? Do you know any?

So it turns out that for now there are no so many projects for extending LWC functionality. Possibly because the successor of Aura Components is nearly perfect ;)

What I have found so far:

Lightning Web Components Recipes

A collection of easy-to-digest code examples for Lightning Web Components. Each recipe demonstrates how to code a specific task in the fewest lines of code possible, while following best practices. A View Source link takes you right to the code in GitHub. From Hello World to data access and third-party libraries, there is a recipe for that!

Not exactly an extension library, but contains many great examples of how to write our LWC code in a good-quality way.

Salesforce Lookup Component

This is a generic & customizable lookup component built using Salesforce Lightning Web Components and SLDS style. It does not rely on third party libraries and you have full control over its datasource.

It may come handy as there's still no standard LWC with lookup functionality.
