There are tips for using crouton floating all around the interwebs. This wiki is for collecting them in one space. Anything core to the usage of crouton will probably be moved into the README, but device-, environment-, and application- specific usage tips can find a home here.


Feel free to add your tips and tricks to the wiki. Do test any commands and scripts you post before submitting them, and try to clean up your instructions. Don't be surprised or offended when the crouton author(s) and other upstanding community members tweak your tips to make the style consistent, or to work in more general situations. All tips should be placed in sub-pages, linked in the appropriate category. It's better to make a separate page for your trick than to have a long page of disparate and unorganized tips, but if you have a bunch of one-liner hints that fit into a coherent group, go ahead and combine them into one page.
