Light Table is a new interactive IDE that lets you modify running programs and embed anything from websites to games. It provides the real time feedback we need to not only answer questions about our code, but to understand how our programs really work.

Light Table is based on a very simple idea: we need a real work surface to code on, not just an editor and a project explorer. We need to be able to move things around, keep clutter down, and bring information to the foreground in the places we need it most.

Cockpit was born out of the need of building a simple dynamic site. Sure, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and all the other full-stack content management systems are possible solutions for that task, but if you just want to manage a simple site, they are just too bloated and too time consuming to setup and maintain.

Cockpits goal is to be simple, but yet powerful and designed in that way that you can spend less time trying to squeeze your site into a theme or template. No need to setup a database server. You need a backup? Just zip your project folder or better, combine it with versioning systems like Git. All Code is Open Source & MIT Licensed.

Have you ever had to set a sublet agreement for a new roommate? For those of us who aren't lawyers, that can be a real annoyance. Googling "lease agreement", then sifting through all the different variations, and studying the bone-chilling legalese can be truly arduous. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a free and friendly website where you only had to type in the word "lease" and you could come up with all the documents you need?

The hard-working minds behind Docracy decided to make it easier for everybody to find the right legal documents — a free database that lets you download and upload documents. If you think there's something either wrong or right with a form, you can just comment on it or upload your own revised version. The website is an open project for all kind of legal documentation.
