This is great Daniel.

I should also say it is pretty easy to knock up an app locally using
pybossa.js and the CORS support of the API. For example, the
humanities folks (including James Harriman-Smith, Iain Emsley, Sam
Leon and myself) were playing around with the idea of a "Guess the
Shakespeare Play" game on Tuesday and we were able to knock up a
working app in under an hour:


We haven't deployed it yet on CrowdCrafting as there are some things
to fix up, but as it just html + JS I can just deploy it online and it
works :-)

> Dear all,
> Today I'm happy to announce that we have finally merged a commit that allows
> everyone to create a PyBossa app in the web browser, without using at all
> the API.
> Now the steps to create an app are the following:
> 1.- Sign up
> 2.- Click in the Create link
> 3.- Full-fill the form (name of the app, slug, etc.) and save it
> 4.- Import the tasks using a Google Docs CSV file (documentation on this
> topic will be ready soon)
> 5.- Create the task presenter by clicking in the Task Editor button
> 6.- Write some HTML and JS and save it.
> We are using the awesome CodeMirror Library for the Task Presenter Editor,
> so while you type you will be able to see how your application will look
> like :-)
> Here is the official Tweet:
