testpilot.firefox.com just got a lot easier to work on

We originally built Test Pilot on top of Django and some JS libraries to fulfill our product requirements as well as keep us flexible enough to evolve quickly since we were a brand new site.

As the site has grown, we've dropped a few requirements, and realized that we were using APIs from our engagement team to collect newsletter sign ups, APIs from our measurement team for our metrics, and everything else on the site was essentially HTML and JS. We used the Django scaffolding for updating the experiments, but there was no reason we needed to.

I'm happy to highlight that as of today testpilot.firefox.com is served 100% statically. Moving to flat files means:
