It's only fascinating if you understand all the jargon. I read it and 
came away with nothing but frustration. I have only the vaguest idea 
what half those terms mean and the screen shots are confusing.

Where's this "guide" they talk about? And there's some kind of viewer? 
Where? Where are Ali's instructions for using the web interface? It took 
me forever just to find where the actual documentation files live. (Why 
are the doc files in the *engine* category? Wouldn't one logically look 
in the IDE category?)

Pointers to instructions should be located prominently somewhere, 
ideally on the entry page. Github is a maze at best, novices shouldn't 
have to hunt for elusive instructions. I'm pretty sure someone here will 
give me a link, but that isn't going to help the next person.
