If you are reading this, you are probably an IT administrator at your organization. Here's a quick overview of what we need from you.
Please whitelist or unblock the following domains:
*.hackclub.com- Hack Club's primary domain, hosts workshops, tools and other content
hack.af- link shortener used for miscellanous links
*.repl.co- Replit, a browser-based IDE used for workshops
github.dev- GitHub, an industry standard for code hosting and collaboration, owned by Microsoft.
hackclub.slack.com- Hack Club's primary communication platform
Feel free to read on for more details and potential alternatives.
If you are unable to whitelist all subdomains, please whitelist the following:
Besides the typical HTTP(S) ports, ports 22 and 9418 need to be open for SSH and Git respectively.
Browser developer tools (eg. Inspect Element) are required for web development projects, so that sites can be debugged and styled.
Replit provides their own toolkit for IT administrators with further options for providing student access to Replit, including a firewalled domain.
Thank you for supporting your students and their interests. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com and we'd be happy to address your concerns.
