Raspberry Pi is an awesome little single board computer for around $35. Adafruit is a one-stop-shop diy electronics supplier. Adafruit rolled it’s own Linux distro to run the Raspberry Pi, called Occidentalis, and has recently alpha released the Raspberry Pi WebIDE that allows you to program your Pi with Chrome or Firefox on your Mac or PC.
The documentation to get things rolling is a bit spread out, so here are steps that Mac users need to use to run Occidentalis with the WebIDE on your Raspberry Pi.
