I cannot find anything on this . I cannot remember what platform this happened on, so I could be making this up .
Plainly - it is in freeCodeCamp’s better interest not to be seen promoting one external product/tool over another.
No argument there.
Keep in mind, the next version of the curriculum does have a section on Git, and another section on GitHub. So, whilst this curriculum is not perfect, I would class the next as an improvement, and all that can be asked of the workflow - things take time to improve and iron-out.
Until then, what about something like:
a) If you are familiar with self-hosting, clone this GitHub repo…
b) Use our Replit starter…
And not even mention the “site-builder”, because that is covered in the self-hosting?
