Developer Shortcuts and Tips / Tricks

Wanted to pick the brains of the community devs here and compile is working list of shortcuts, tips and tricks for developing SmartApps and DeviceTypes in SmartThings.

So if you have something, share and I will compile a master list.

Anything you find useful, a groovy shorthand, a useful web service, a function that saves time, etc.

Or just say how you work, do you use the IDE, simulator, external editor, mobile device, emulators, Mac or windows, anything that you want to share about how you develop with SmartThings and what Shortcuts or handy tips or tricks you have learned. Please feel free to share in this thread.



This is a wonderful idea, I have just started developing on smartthings and would love to know if there is any external editor, so I could use it.
