As I mentioned the usage of Markdown for the Slate documentation builder, here some Markdown editors:
Highly customizable editor.
Use it anywhere and sync to dropbox if you like.
Nice split-screen setup, that shows you how the html conversion looks like.
A nice minimal editor that was developed for Elementary OS.
Alertify.js is a small library which provides light-weight, high performance browser dialogs.
jQuery.sheet is spreadsheet plugin, that offers creation, viewing and editing. All combined with a nice API.

IoT is the current buzz word and I will be doing some more tinkering with current solutions this year. I have done projects with Arduino , Raspberry Pi and looking into relayr / Wunderbar right now.
relayr provides a tech stack with Wunderbar, that easily connects included sensors with the cloud. They provide a wide range of API endpoints to collect data and even integrate hardware solutions like Arduino orRaspberry Pi.
“The WunderBar is built for software developers. It is a powerful rapid prototyping and product development tool that enables developers to immediately start creating products and solutions that utilise the Internet of Things, without any prior hardware knowledge. No soldering or electronic engineering experience is needed. Just choose what sensors you need for your project and start coding.”

Starterkit should arrive next week …
We should always try to make our apps as self-explaining as possible, but sometimes features need to be showcased or explained. This helps you to do a quick first-start guide for new users.

“The picture element, srcset and sizes attributes, and associated features allow web developers to deliver an appropriate image to every user depending on a variety of conditions like screen size, viewport size, screen resolution, and more. Picturefill enables support for the picture element and associated features in browsers that do not yet support them, so you can start using them today!”
