apps

The JavaScript 'engine' for all of our tutorials, puzzle types and online tools. It gets built into a static package that we serve through dashboard.

Everything else

  • aws: Configuration and scripts that manage our deployments.

  • shared: Source and assets used by many parts of our application.
  • tools: Git commit hooks.
