The Guardian website frontend.
For everybody who engages with our journalism, theguardian.com is an industry-best news website that is fast, accessible and easy to use. Unlike other ways of developing products, ours puts the audience first.
Frontend is a set of Play Framework 2 Scala applications. It is built in two parts, using
makefor the client side asset build and SBT for the Play Framework backend.
For Articles, Frontend's responsiblity is to build JSON to pass to the modern rendering service, Dotcom Rendering.
