downloading folders from google drive.

I wanted to download some course material on RL shared by the author via Google drive using the command line.  I got a bunch of stuff using wget a folder in google drive was a challenge. I looked it up in SO which gave me a hint but no solution. I installed gdown using pip and then used: gdown --folder --continue if there are more than 50 files you need to use --remaining-ok and only get the first 50. In such a case its best to download using the folder using the UI and decompress locally. Decompressing from the command line created errors related to unicode but using the mac UI I decompressed without a glitch.

What tools and developer resource are available for Polymer ?

Data scientists need a platform for disseminating information and ideas. Polymer 1.0 release is perhaps the biggest news for web development this year and as this platform from Google matures we get more information on how app/website development is viewed by Google. New tools are being released and a whole ecosystem is forming around polymer and web components.
