Retina work

These past months I have done a NetBeans patch for the Apple Retina Display and also made a small Wiki-like site to help me and anyone else interested with finding matching font icons for the NetBeans icons: https://nextbeans.com/retina

The nextbeans.com stack is Angular, Prime NG, nginx, Jetty, Servlets, Spring Framework JDBC, HSQLDB. SSL via Let's Encrypt.  Hosted at Scaleway.

It's a fun project since I got to learn Angular, find a bug and submit a patch for Prime NG, see how Let's Encrypt does free SSL certificates, learn about the EU cookie warning and all the many tiny things that are needed for a site.

Angular in particular and the whole webdev ecosystem was a lot of new information for me. I was changing project configuration as Angular progressed along! Which reminds me: @angular/cli reached 1.0 and I should probably see if I need to tweak something.
