Getting Started

Build instruction


All dependencies are handled through yarn. Run yarn install to install them.


yarn serve - runs developement server on It watches your files and automatically rebuilds if anything changes.


yarn build builds production version with all optimizations. The resulting build will be in the dist/ directory, ready to be deployed.

Adding Lessons

Lessons live in the lessons/ folder. To add a new lesson create a new folder, following the format of X.X-name-here. The name will be used as the identifier, and the url slug to permalink to a lesson. The resulting folder should contain two files:

  • code.cpp, containing the code of the lesson.
  •, containing the text of the lesson. Advanced markdown & html available.

To make the lesson available in the application, add it to the lessons/lessons.ts file. If the development server is running, all changes will be reflected immediately.
