Tidbits are the small and particularly interesting item of information that we use in a day to day professional life.
We often note such information down on some form of Sticky notes. They may be actual sticky notes that we stick on our Monitors
or Google keep.
These are quite limited in their use because not everyone has access to it. On the other hand shared documents like Google docs are accessible by everyone but are not good for maintaining short notes.
These tidbits of information will have greater impact if many people can contribute to it, is organised and is searchable by everyone. This thought and the wish to play with elasticsearch and angularjs led me to create a minimalist FAQ search app. The app works directly out of the box and people can contribute articles into it formatted with Markdown. The elastic backend helps make the storage simple and the search easy.
