In that spirit, Mars Protocol builders opened up a complete set of files and images for a modified Mars web application/user interface (UI) moments ago.
Released under a special license, any human or droid can now download the modified Mars UI files and deploy them at will to host their own front-end that interacts with Mars’ smart contracts.

The modified Mars UI files and full license are available in the github repository at https://github.com/mars-protocol/interface.
Mars builders believe the future is decentralized. That requires radical transparency and the widespread distribution of code. Today’s release is a giant step in that direction and helps ensure Mars will always be free and accessible to all.
