Last week, I published my first ProcessWire module - a simple Textformatter.
Github Project: https://github.com/MartinMuzatko/TextformatterAutoAnchor/
ProcessWire Module Page: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/textformatter-auto-anchor/
The module does nothing simpler than adding anchors and IDs to headings (h2 to h6) for quick navigation and for sharing sections of pages. It was a work of maybe 30 minutes, but it even got featured in the latest ProcessWire weekly.
Why is this important?
We need more of the community to stand up and code up things that solves even tiny problems. OpenSource projects like ProcessWire depend on the community. I didn't realize what I could do with just a tiny Textformatter.
