Project Samwise v1.0

CircleCI License

Last updated 03/20/2019.



A web application designed to help Cornell students plan their semesters.

Getting Started

To run the webapp, go to the frontend folder and run yarn start. To build the frontend for deployment, run yarn build.

We use various tools to ensure the quality of our frontend code. They should be installed and properly configured with your IDE or text editor.


We disabled everyone's ability to directly commit to master branch to ensure code quality. To make changes to the code, you can create a new branch, have some changes in your branch, and create it a pull request with good changelog.

You are expected to follow the Style Guide in your contributed code.
