I find the inclusion of Node.js and an express server to be quite interesting.

I found it quite amusing to find //TODO: comments in xsc/xcsd/socket.js:

    // TODO: find a way to distinguish between Xcode and web UI (maybe)
I wonder if they ever found a way.

Hey, glad you liked it! Yeah I think they did, because the browser UI socket and the Xcode socket are different. The browser one informs the page of what bots are running at the moment, where opposed to the Xcode socket, which sends short status messages and a progress float.
