The new xkcd is pretty cool (2445). A quick dive in the code reveals they even wrote the app in morse code 😆

I've only found a few supported commands on the morse server. I wonder how deep this goes.

so far I've got:
- hi
- hello
- help
- echo
- check
- return

the responses lead me to believe the server doesn't do anything fancy, it's just responding with a small set of pre-recorded messages.

I'm guessing the developer works on a windows machine. The encoded source uses windows line endings too.

Okay, I'm done with this rabbit hole.

Okay last one: sending a number opens the corresponding xkcd comic. Nice touch.
