he Application is a directory that contains an R script, called app.R, which is made up of a user interface object, a server function, and a folder (named www) that contains additional data, scripts and text files required to support the Application. The code of the Application is available in the GitHub repository. Anyone is free to download this code, edit it and redistribute within the terms of the Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International license.

The Application is deployed online via a server made available by Oxford Research Support Services. The underlying code and Application are continually being updated as the CoMo model is being developed, new features are added and corrections to the existing code are made. The CoMo Application was written in the R language and uses Shiny, an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web applications.
