elC - The elementary OS Combobulator - A community project :) <3

This isn't a question, more of a helper and a call to action! OK not that dramatic, but I'd love some community participation/assistance.

What am I doing? - I've began compiling a list of terminal commands I use with each new install to help fix common issues, enable some functionality and install software not available in the App Center/repositories.

What was my motivation for starting the project? - There are many issues within the community that tend to come up a lot. I know many of them are open bug reports, but until they are patched we can provide a consolidated list of work-arounds. I think this will be helpful for newcomers and veterans alike.

What is my vision for the project? - I'm hoping to elevate this to a community project and maybe eventually get it in the App Center.

What do I need? - For those in this community that have a proven history of helping solve some of the tougher and more common issues, I'd appreciate your contribution.

How can you participate? - I've posted the elC on Github for everyone to view and comment/contribute.

A little brain f*ck...
Would you like to have elementary OS without modal windows?
Any dialogue can be displayed in the place where the action.
I believe that the modal windows only distract.
They spend your time, placing the focus on yourself.
Think about it, you can re-vote...later.

Hey guys!

With the back to school season coming right around the corner, I've being putting the finishing touches to the 1.2 version of Notes-up! For the guys that don't know, Notes Up is a notes manager written for elementary OS from where you can write your notes fast and easy using Markdown to make them look beautiful!

If you want to try it out, here is a link to my Github:

Version 1.2 has a lot of changes, but the biggest ones are:
- In-app trash for deleted items!
- 2 new included stylesheets made by the awesome John Otander, and you can also select and modify the styles on a per-notebook basis
- You can now add Bookmarks right from the app by clicking the Star on the headerbar
- Keyboard shortcuts! You can now see them if you hover over the buttons
- Contractor Integration: You can send your notes via Mail or Bluetooth, and any other action other third-party apps add

And a lot of other small tweaks and fixes! If you're curios you should check out the full changelog :)

Again, thank you all for your support! It's pretty awesome seeing the love in this awesome community!
