As people who use our computers a lot, we often run into situations where we have to read a set of instructions on the web and replicate these instructions on our local machines. We wondered whether we could change this paradigm. Our idea was to open up desktop functionality, such as the local filesystem and the command line to web developers. This would let websites run set up code, automatically sync files, and make everyday web use that much simpler. We're extremely proud of our developer "Command" interface, where developers can interact with our javascript library to run different types of code on a client's local machine. These commands include uploading Arduino sketches from the browser, syncing files, and cloning/configuring GitHub projects locally. The "Command" interface makes our platform easy to use for developers as well.
