Very cool, esp for non-coders.

@dshan I wouldn't be so sure. I mean, it could just be me, but such an incredible amount of abstraction can't be a good thing. Things do go wrong with code and deployment, and if non-coders become so reliant on something like this, then a production level project may suffer when something goes wrong. Regardless, I think lowering the barrier to entry in this case is a great thing.

@iorahul There are already a lot of similar one-click install services for stuff like WordPress, Ghost, etc. out there. It doesn't seem like a particularly risky move to me.

@iorahul @dshan Ya, I'm not so certain this is as big for non-coders as much as for current developers who want to quickly test out a framework or plugin, etc. It's always a bit of a pain downloading examples and getting them up and running locally. This just kind of makes it easier to get started.

@iorahul I think anything that makes it easier/faster for people to implement code and ideas has benefits that outweigh the downsides. Anyone serious about a production app is likely to take extra steps, and in many cases a direct deploy like this will reduce code problems - many noobs can f*ck up a basic app simply by pulling the repo onto their local machine and tinkered before trying to deploy, said someone who's done it. :)
