Cornell DTI



A web app to help Cornell students plan their semesters.

Getting Started

You will need Node.js and Yarn installed on your development machine.

To setup your environment, go into the root folder and run yarn. Then, run yarn workspace frontend start to start a development server for frontend. If you need to work on firebase functions, run yarn workspace functions build to compile your functions code.

This repository comes with multiple tools to ensure code quality, including a linter and a type checker. Please ensure that they are properly configured with your IDE or text editor. For text editor setup instructions, please visit Cornell DTI's developer website.


To maintain code quality, the master branch is write-protected. To contribute, please work on your changes in a new branch and then create a pull request into master. When opening a pull request, make sure you follow the pull request template. Better changelogs make the review process go quicker and easier for everyone.

All contributed code is expect to follow the Style Guide.
