The web was supposed to be a thing we make

This post introduces us to Glitch, an online application thata helps people make their own custom-made Node.js application. It's all a bit overwhelming at first, but it's a giant leap beyond what you would normally have to do to set up such an application (think containers, Bower, webhooks, analytics, and the rest). The interface, meanwhile, is connected to a community that can share ideas and help. It's a bt like mixing Geocities with CodePen with Stack Overflow, all running on Github. Like I say, overwhelming. But let your eyes adjust to the pink and yelow and let it soak in for a bit, and practice... and see what you can do.
