- Burst Wiki Makeover – Help Wanted!
The Burst Apps Team are currently in the process of transferring the Burst Wiki to a new system.

The new site is currently hosted at https://burst-apps-team.github.io/burst-wiki/. Feel free to take a look around.The GitHub repository is at https://github.com/burst-apps-team/burst-wiki.
All contributions are greatly welcomed – just send us a pull request!
