DocumentCloud is a catalog of primary source documents and a tool for 
annotating, organizing and publishing them on the web. Documents are 
contributed by journalists, researchers and archivists.

This codebase contains the entirety of DocumentCloud.org, and pulls together
the rest of our open-source projects: Docsplit is used to extract data from 
incoming documents; that work is parallelized across CloudCrowd; data on the
client-side is modeled by Backbone.js, which depends on Underscore.js for all 
of its abilities; Jammit concatenates and compresses the dozens of CSS and JS 
files into a single asset package; the NYTimes' Document Viewer displays the 
documents, while Pixel Ping records the traffic.

The annotated source code to DocumentCloud is available here:
