Learn You The Node.js For Much Win!

Workshopper is used by learnyounode, and other Node.js command-line workshop applications.

*Documentation is being written for the v1 rewrite right now! Ping @rvagg if you need anything. learnyounode is now using this new version, for now you can use it to see how this works.

For now, @linclark has written a good introduction on creating your own workshop, available here.

High-level overview

Workshopper is essentially a test-runner with a fancy terminal UI. The Workshopper package itself is largely concerned with the menu system and some of the basic command-line parsing. Much of the work for executing the exercise validation is handled by workshopper-exercise.
