Build Status Code Coverage

This is a course scheduler for students at St. Olaf College. You give it your areas of study (majors, concentrations, degrees), the courses you have taken and are planning on taking, and it tells you if you can graduate or not.


  1. Visit https://stolaf.edu/people/rives/g

    • Gobbldygook currently supports every major browser, except for Safari (so Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 11, and probably Microsoft Edge).
    • Let's just say that Safari's database support is … a bit lacking.
    • On iOS devices, every browser is required to use Safari internally, which means that Chrome, Opera, and Safari on iOS all have the same terrible database support.
    • In summary: don't use Safari, iPhones, iPads, or Apple Watches to access Gobbldygook.
  2. Wait for the progress bars in the corner to go away ;-)

    1. Then push "New Student".
  3. Fill out the student information form on the left: your name (or whatever you want to put there) and your matriculation and graduation.

  4. Add your areas of study: your degrees, majors, concentrations, and areas of emphasis.

  5. Search for the courses you have taken and are planning on taking, and drag them into the appropriate semesters.

    • Make sure to choose the right offering for each semester!
    • If you use the "search" button on a semester, it will automatically limit your search to just that semester, which might be helpful.

If you've already been testing it, then you already have some data entered. You can now edit your name and matriculation/graduation years, and even add and remove areas of study! No longer are you bound by the shackles of "what did Hawken put in the demo student?"


You can see additional commands by executing npm run with no arguments.
