Technical Insights

Preferring time-tested tools, PL-10 is built with NodeJS and uses SCSS for styling, EJS for view templates, and Express for the backend. Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned web developer, you'll find the code approachable and adaptable. 

Audio File Compatibility

PL-10 plays nice with various audio file types, including MP3, MP4, AAC, and OGG. While MP3 is the safest bet due to browser differences, you can tweak server settings to support other formats.
