This is a great start Boyan! I'm happy that you were able to use the  
renderer successfully.

One suggestion I have is to make the component so that it can be  
previewed without a server present. This is useful for people who want  
to check out what we have quickly. It also makes client side  
development easier since some development, such as style sheet  
creation, can happen without using a server. My recommendation for how  
to do this is to follow what was done in Engage. Essentially, we check  
to see if the page was loaded from the file system and if so we load  
test data. If it's not loaded from the file system, we load the data  
from CouchDB. You can see this code here:

I also noticed a typo in the HTML which I'm sure you'd have found when  
you were implementing delete: "flc-thumsBrowser-deleteLink"

Sounds like a good plan. You should probably check in with Jacob when  
you get to the styling part because I think he was planning to work on
