Shiny! Shiny! is a very simple text authoring app for Chrome. It is designed around the 'Ace' editor. It is ideal for use in educational environments (e.g. Exams) where a full screen text editor is required, without the distraction of a web-browser (when used in 'kiosk' mode).
It has a number of simple features (saving, opening, printing) that are detailed in the INSTRUCTIONS file (available from the App by pressing 'CTRL-?').
International and 'special' characters are supported by their 'Unicode' codes. Full details and the codes can be found in the CHARACTERS file (available from the App by pressing 'CTRL-SHIFT-?').
You can download the code yourself for modification/testing/usage/debugging or grab it from the Google Web Store.
Ironically named for it's minimalistic approach. Sometimes simple solutions are best.
