The inner workings of Edge

Adobe Edge relies heavily on three related technologies: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. There are also specific JavaScript libraries that play an essential role in making all of this work together. These include jQuery and the Adobe Edge Runtime. In order for Edge content to work successfully, all of these components must be in their correct place, and there are certain files which should not be edited once generated by the application.
