Ow


Setup

You're developing a phone app that detects when a phone is dropped and shouts "Ow!" at the moment of impact. Run the following setup commands.

cd path/to/parent/dir/
mkdir ow && cd ow
git init
echo "DATABASE_PWD=kitty123" > .env
mkdir ideas
echo "multiple voice options" > ideas/ideas.txt
echo "$5 fixed price??" > ideas/pricing.txt
touch app.py
path/to/parent/dir/
  ow/
    .env
    app.py
    ideas/
      ideas.txt
      pricing.txt
bill@gates:~$ git status -u
On branch main
