    .husky: Git hooks are custom scripts that run in response to some event (e.g. before a commit is created), and they can choose to abort that event under certain conditions. One of their main drawbacks though is that they live inside the .git folder, which means they cannot be directly versioned like the rest of the project. This folder is used by the popular Husky package that makes it possible to include Git hooks with your project and it takes care of installing them to their appropriate location so they can be detected by Git. Example from uuid.

    activePlayers is a map of unique player IDs (determined by clients via uuid to timestamps of when they last made a GET https://farmhand.vercel.app/api/get-market-data?room=global request. Each time the function is invoked, it examines the map to see which timestamps are older than the HEARTBEAT_INTERVAL_PERIOD (currently 10 seconds) and deletes any that are expired. This data is returned to the client and also written back to Redis to be persisted across function invocations. This is how the active room participants are tracked.
