Feel - The code behind ConceptCoaster
Visit the Python tutorial on ConceptCoaster to check out an example course. The application consists of two components:
- For Instructors: A course and content creator you'd love to use.
- For Students: A simple, responsive web app providing a zen-like learning experience.
(This is a rewrite of my previous project).
- Khan Academy and Coursera are not open source. You cannot run your own instance of these sites.
- Traditional Learning Management systems and EdX are clunky, focus too much on administrative aspects and suffer from feature creep.

2. Pull the image:
docker pull pramodliv1/feel:0.3
3. Start the container:
docker run -p 0.0.0.0:7777:7777 pramodliv1/feel:0.3 /root/start.sh
The container exposes a port on
- Your data will be NOT be saved when the container is stopped.
- The app does NOT connect to external dependencies like Algolia and HackerRank
This is a single-page-app built using
- React, Backbone and Materialize on the front-end
- Nginx as a reverse proxy
- Django as a JSON/HTTP server
- PostgreSQL as the primary datastore
- Redis for caching
- HackerRank to evaluate code
- Algolia for search
- Opbeat to measure django performance
- Cloudflare for HTTPS, CDN
- Azure and Digital Ocean VMs for hosting.
The application is in an exploratory stage, and may undergo drastic changes. The course-creator is not open to the public yet. I'm getting feedback from students and instructors. Issues are noted in a private spreadsheet and there no tests either. I'd love to hear your feedback.
