Auto-formatting with JSCS or a visualization of landscape data, five links that will teach you: nothing is impossible.


1. Auto-formatting JavaScript Code Style:

JSCS is a code style linter for programmatically enforcing your style guide.
There is a new auto-formatting feature in JSCS for applying style guide rules in your scripts.

2. Tippecanoe:

Mapbox released Tippecanoe, a tool to build vector tileset from large geoJSON. The goal of Tippecanoe is to enable making a scale-independent view of your data, so that at any level you can see the density and texture of the data.

4. Atom editor enables pair programming:

Push agile development with the new Atom Package for pair programming in the text editor Atom.

5. A self executing code pen:
