Ok spider looks like some excellent enhancements to JavaScript, I particularly like the inheritance parts and the ?? Operator very good ideas. I should really investigate ecmascript 6 changes too 
Spider is a programming language that compiles to JavaScript. It's just JavaScript, but better.

But its closer to plain JavaScript than most of the alternatives, particularly coffee script :)

Here's something +Roman Nurik and I wrote to help with dealing with #Android  System UI visibility across the different API levels.

It allows you to provide a level specifying how the System UI's visibility should be changed: LEVEL_LOW_PROFILE, LEVEL_HIDE_STATUS_BAR, LEVEL_LEAN_BACK or LEVEL_IMMERSIVE.

To use:
SystemUiHelper helper = new SystemUiHelper(
        activity, LEVEL_LEAN_BACK, additionalFlags);
// Show the system ui
helper.show()
// Hide the system ui
helper.hide()

Dealing with spacing in grids on Android is not always straightforward. There are some tricks though, one of which consists on using android:divider on LinearLayout.

In order to better explain the technique, I have just published a blog post that explains the idea in details. I hope this trick can be useful to you. I personally use it extensively.

Most user interfaces - on both mobile and web - are based on a notion of grids. Grids basically consist on splitting the user interface in a bunch of …
