Well i missed this announcement from Cloudant

Well i noticed this on my account page with Cloudant:

Cloudant DBaaS price change—the free tier just got free-er!

Big news! We’ve raised the limit of the Cloudant DBaaS multi-tenant free tier from $5 per month to $50 per month. This permanent change begins on January 1, 2015, and will automatically be applied to the accounts of all multi-tenant users.

There will still be no extra charges for secondary index reads and updates, and bulk reads and writes will continue to count as one request.

You can see the details in their changed pricing page.

This is an awesome way to start the 2015. $50 is a lot of http and json flying back and forth. For me it means more room to play.

Beautify JavaScript + JSONP = HappyFamily

If you are using JSONP to do cross domain grabbing of data to show on a page often you will want to see the raw response in your browser. The issue with this is it can get confusing because the browser just dumps the JSONP response to the window.

Enter jsbeautifer

All this website does is format your JavaScript to be more readable. I commonly use this site with JSONP responses and for all the times i have used this page I am glad it’s free.

Have a try, grab some JavaScript, JSON, etc.. and paste it into the window and click beautify.
