We have the world's quickest coding challenge for you to do! In a subdirectory called challenge, please include your solution to the following.

What is the most creative way you can get a circle to appear on the screen of a web browser?

Please include a run script ( which we can run to test your solution. This script should do any necessary building and compilation, and print either an address or a file we can open in a web browser running on the same machine. Make sure the script contains a valid shebang.

If you start a server, make sure you background it and have the script print out a URL to visit. If you start a server, please use the $PORT environment variable (which will be set for you) to determine which port to start the server on.

Please note, if you are calling python in your run script, you should be explicit about calling either python2 or python3.

Alternatively, if your solution is a static site, you can simply include an index.html file and omit the run script.

Encrypting Your Application

If you wish to conceal your personal information, you can encrypt individual files using the public key found in this repo (public.pem). Please append the extension .enc to any file you encrypt. To encrypt a file, you can use the below command (make sure openssl is installed).

openssl smime -encrypt -aes256 -binary -in application.json -outform DEM -out application.json.enc public.pem
