You can follow the steps in the Github Repository and always ask for help on the forum if you get stuck.

For Techies and End-Users alike

Using the Middleware, you can serve the purposes of several stakeholders of your projects alike: have people get visual feedback and allow for quick read-ups on important information, as well as ...
