I just pushed an update to the main README file for the project and added a README for both the UI and API. I go over some higher-level concepts and patterns that we use in the code, the main libraries and services and some specifics that are not easily inferred from reading the code.
@hugi and others, could you take a look and give feedback by replying here? Is it good enough to help everyone get started at the hackathon / dev week?
If the docs are good enough I'll spend a little bit of time cleaning up our issues. Right now we have a lot of issues that are half-finished since we've completed them without proper auth. I want to create new issues for proper auth so that we can move the ones that are half-finished now.
