Start the development server and see the application running at localhost:8080:

$> npm run serve

Motivation

SOCR, Statistics Online Computational Resource has a huge user base who constantly access the educational data present and java tools which use these data to aid in understanding statistics. As far as the technology is concerned, currently all the applications are written in java and are presented as java applets. The reach of these applications is bottlenecked by technology.

Goal

The world is going the HTML5 way. Browsers are becoming more powerful. We intend to create a toolbox which will serve users on all platforms. We are primarily using CoffeeScript (compiles to JavaScript) for all the computations and presentation. Given the fact that today’s browsers have powerful javaScript engines (v8, SpiderMonkey), we perform all the calculations on the browser with no server dependency. File management, database, computation will be performed inside the browser.

Technologies/Packages

CoffeeScript Jade Less Webpack Node.js

Dependencies

Bootstrap jQuery AngularJS with AngularUI D3.js Handsontable with ngHandsontable jStat Wrangler
