Thank you so much for sharing your experience! It’s a lot of good stuff to digest—I’m sure I’ll keep coming back to this and bugging you again and again… ;)

First question: any recommendations for testing in a vanilla JavaScript frontend? A little poking around indicates that using Jest is the most painless route, but…I like a challenge? Is purely-vanilla-JS testing (at my level) even possible?

Also: for getting the game going end-to-end in different environments, is that something I can easily mock on a single computer with some virtual machines? (The last time I used a virtual machine was trying to get my Windows games onto my first Linux laptop…)

Thanks again Andrew!! :)
