Gradient is built using the Laravel 5 framework on a PHP codebase and deployed on a Amazon Web Service Server. Detailed information on class structure and system architecture can be found within this document. As well as some of the more important code snippets.

burden of being judged about their niche interests and promotes freedom of self expression.
