We have seen our fair share of projects that have involved the super small Raspberry Pi computer, and most of these are just pure genius in nature. There is always the line that we would like to cross from time to time, pushing the boundaries to explore new possibilities, and while it is theoretically possible to transform a Raspberry Pi into a web server, the real truth is, it ain’t that easy. The folks over at Google might have just unraveled the mystery and made things a whole lot easier by streamlining the process via its latest Coder project.

Google’s Coder is an open source tool which would enable developers to construct web apps for a ready-made Raspberry Pi web server, and the only thing that they need would be a desktop browser, now how cool is that? Coder will be able to manage the entire slew of files, media included, and the Raspberry Pi needs just a network connection and an SD memory card reader to get going. Other than the hardware, Coder would remain free to use, although it weighs in at a rather hefty 1.04GB download. Even if you are a new coders, it does not matter as you can use Coder to craft small projects in HTML, CSS, and Javascript, all directly from the web browser itself.
