A while ago I startup a project with some collegues. We are designing a router, the xway, where you can install apps, just like your phone, so that you can automate your house or gather sensor information through these apps "microservices".
This is an open source project and we would like to have Raspberry Pi feedback because I have been around for a while and lots of "hacks" have been already done, either for automation and sensing. We created a raspbian distro with everything ready http://bit.ly/1K8bebg even though it is not necessary to install the xway dashboard http://bit.ly/1Hm5qb8
Since there was no way to publish this work we are launching our marketplace private beta so you can package your python or nodejs scripts (or rpi-compiled binaries) and upload them in order for beginners just to install that application to reproduce your work. Invitations are open http://bit.ly/1FHbG29
We also opened a Gitter channel here http://bit.ly/1dQmFKt in case you have any doubts. The issues can be reported through GitHub http://bit.ly/1EBHpvO, as always. Remember this is just a beta, we will keep working.
