Candle Manager - user-friendly web-based tool to program Arduino's

For a project I'm working on I've created a small tool that could be useful to everyone in the community. I'm sharing an early version for Christmas
The tool is meant to be used with the Raspberry Pi. Through this web interface you can generate and upload code to a plugged in Arduino with the click of a few buttons.
It takes code templates (which are just normal Arduino files), and transforms them into an easy to use interface so that users can change some settings.
From the user's preferences new code is generated. This can then be uploaded with the upload wizard:
The user never has to see any code if they don't want to. But if they do it has a built in code editor too.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It builds on the new Arduino Command Line Interface (CLI).
HTML5 <-> PHP <-> Arduino CLI
What's is good for?
- Giving workshops. People no longer have to install the Arduino IDE on their laptops, but can instead connect to Raspberry Pi wifi hotspot.
- I'm developing it to be part of a privacy friendly smart home demonstrator that I've been working on for a while. I'm building it on top of MySensors, MySController-rs, Mozilla Gateway and the Arduino CLI.
The code and more screenshots and details can be found here:

@alowhum Oh, very good work sir!
This is one of those things that has been needed for so long - I look forward to seeing the development of this as time goes on.
