Add more examples to our developer documentation

Registered by Daniel Holbach on 2014-03-06

One piece of feedback we've heard is that it'd be nice to provide a few more code examples for new app developers, to serve as inspiration.

Examples with discussion
We've discussed and agreed on the need for a new category of doc on the portal: code sample (branch) with discussion. these will live in Tutorials but are not not procedural. they are often more tightly focused than an on ramp tutorial.

Comment from Jamie:
jdstrand> I can't attend, but thought I'd toss out a few of things I would love to see:
 - tutorial on theming, code examples for setting up TextFields/TextAreas in ways that
   work well with both a mouse and the OSK,
 - code examples of proper use of ListEmpty with confirmation on delete,
 - tips like anchorToKeyboard,
 - tutorial on proper use of page loading (ie, so everything doesn't have to load at
   once),
 - when to use WorkerScripts vs C++ extension with threading (and how to use them),
 - tutorial on using U1db for settings, for persistant storage, etc

(?)
