Building your first application

In day-to-day software development, the text editor is where gigantic, world-changing software often starts. We are going to build a multi-purpose web-based text editor to use as a scratchpad for snippets of code, a to-do list, or stripping formatting from copied text—immensely handy. For added realism, there will be an imaginary customer along the way asking for new features.
