How to compile

TODO

Grab source code from the github repo

TODO

Right now we have a separate backend that routes 0MQ events to a Tornado server, allowing WebSocket communication. That is appealing from its modular perspective, but suffers performance and complexity problems. A proper cross-browser, cross-platform browser extension based on FireBreath is being built.

More gestures should be recognized.
