Google's Coder Tool Lets Almost Anyone Develop Apps with Raspberry Pi
In case you've missed it, the diminutive $25/$35 Linux computer dubbed Raspberry Pi has emerged as one of the biggest open source stories anywhere this year. It's attracted many tinkerers, is now running several flavors of Linux. There is even now a supercomputer consisting of many Pi devices lashed together with Lego pieces (see the photo), and concoctions that turn the Pi into a home security device or music synthesizer.
The Coder project is from Google Creative Labs, and will turn a Raspberry Pi into a simple web server with a browser-centric development environment. The Coder installer is free for download here, and you can load it onto an SD card, put the card in a Raspberry Pi device and choose coder.local to get started.
According to the project team:
Sounds like fun for tinkerers.
