Bell is a synchronized timer that counts down to the next time the bell rings at school. A live instance of this program is currently running at bell.plus (formerly countdown.zone and bell.lahs.club). This software continues to be developed by Los Altos High School alumni, nicolaschan and noloerino, who began working on it during their senior year of high school. The LAHS Hack Club helps to maintain the schedules for LAHS.
- Chrome extension originally developed by noloerino.
