VIP codebase

On the VIP Platform, each application’s code lives within a repository (repo) in the wpcomvip GitHub organization. By default, this repository is private but can be public if required. Once the repository is created, it can be used for development, or simply to push work to it as a git remote and use any existing infrastructure (e.g. Beanstalk, Bitbucket, etc.).


The GitHub repository for each Node.js application is based on the vip-go-node-skeleton.
