The Ajax.org Team has finally unveiled Cloud9, their much anticpated IDE-in-the-sky. Cloud9 runs on a stack of Node.js, HTML5, and their own Ajax.org frameworks which Ruben and Rik discussed in episode #16.
Although an early alpha, Cloud9 looks polished and includes a number of cool features:
- At least as good as existing IDE’s and text editors with help from the latest browsers
- Local and remote file and repository integration
- Debugging support for Chrome / NodeJS
- Test and deploy your code in the cloud
$ bin/cloud9-osx64 $ bin/cloud9-lin32 > bincloud9-win32.bat
On the Mac, the script automatically starts the server and opens Cloud9 at http://localhost:3000.
