Sorry if this has already been discussed, I couldn’t find an answer.
I know in the old curriculum you were allowed to use whatever tools you wanted as long as your code was publicly viewable somewhere on the internet and you had a live demo.
Since the newer curriculum automates testing with Codepen, I wonder if this is still the case. I’d personally prefer to code locally and just focus on user story features. I’d rather not concern myself about writing the ids whose purpose seems mostly for the tests.
