Heroku announces Dropbox to Heroku feature (beta)

So this is pretty cool.  Imagine you have an app on Heroku and you want someone ‘non-technical’ to be able to drop materials in.  This would make an awesome solution for that,

Heroku’s new Dropbox Sync, just released in beta, enables you to create a deployment workflow that works for multiple situations and for every member of your team.
Why is this useful?

  • ​Makes it easy for designers to deploy changes to stylesheets and images for your app
  • Hack your app in an emergency on the go from your mobile device
  • Add new content to your static app by just dropping in a new file

​Getting set up for Dropbox deploys is incredibly simple, and can be done from the comfort of a browser window. Just navigate to the Code tab in Dashboard for any given app and click Connect to Dropbox:

Don’t have an app? Then try the following Heroku Button, which deploys a simple app built using Node and Harp:

Once it’s deployed, in one browser tab open the app by clicking “View,” and in another click “Make your first edit”, which opens the Code tab. Then just click the “Connect to Dropbox” button.
Now make a change. In this app you can change the slideshow by editing index.jade in the public directory, and then click “Deploy” from the Code tab.

Success attracts success and failure attracts failure because of the law of harmonious attraction

In physics, positives attract negatives and vice versa, but in human relationships the opposite is true. Negative people attract only other negative people, while positive thinkers attract like-minded individuals. You will find that when you begin to achieve success more successes will follow. This is the law of harmonious attraction. When riches begin to come your way, you’ll be amazed how quickly they accumulate. Train your mind to visualize yourself acquiring a specific amount of wealth or achieving a certain goal — whatever you most desire. Then use self-suggestion to persuade your subconscious mind that you can achieve your goal, and put your plan into action. When you use the tools that you have at your disposal to prepare yourself for success and visualize yourself as having already reached your objective, you can achieve any reasonable goal that you set for yourself.
