Creating your first chrome app on a Chromebook

Doing development on Chromebook usually means developing online. There are a lot of sites around for that. But with the APIs getting more mature, its just a matter of time before someone builds a kick-ass IDE which runs natively on Chromebooks without network connectivity. One such tool which I've been exploring for a last few weeks is from Google and called " Chrome Dev Editor " If you have never built and run a chrome app or extension, I'll show you how to do this in 3 easy steps.     Step 1 Launch the app and click on the "+" button to add a new project. Pick a project name and select "JavaScript Chrome App" in the drop down menu.       Step 2 Notice how it automatically adds the minimum code required for it to run. This will be the template you are going to work with. You are almost done, but lets review the files in there to understand why they are there.   manifest.json - This is the most important file. Modify the app name, version number

I don't travel to NYC often, but when I do, I look for the days when there are no snow storms.
