What is Cloud9 IDE?

Cloud9 provides a development environment in the cloud. Cloud9 enables developers to get started with coding immediately with pre-setup environments called workspaces, collaborate with their peers with collaborative coding features, and build web apps with features like live preview and browser compatibility testing. It supports more than 40 languages, with class A support for PHP, Ruby, Python, JavaScript/Node.js, and Go.

What is Codio?

Every project gets its own Box: an instantly available server-side development environment with full terminal access. With features such as forking, collaboration, importing from Git repos and more, Codio strives to remove as many barriers as possible to create a platform developers will enjoy using as their IDE of choice.

What is Eclipse Che?

Eclipse Che makes Kubernetes development accessible for developer teams, providing one-click developer workspaces and eliminating local environment configuration for your entire team.

    Reviews of Cloud9 IDE, Codio, and Eclipse Che
    Review ofCloud9 IDECloud9 IDE
    • I use a Cloud9 micro plan and connect SSH workspaces to Google Compute Engine instances.

    • For me, Cloud 9 has good documentation, and it's relatively quick to install on my Debian instances using the Cloud 9 install script.

    • I prefer a cloud-based IDE since I don't want to spend resources on my local or remote machines running or maintaining an IDE.

    • As of Dec 2015, Cloud9 doesn't support debugging in Python. However, this hasn't been a problem for me since I use pdb for debugging and pytest for testing. I use the IDE mostly for code navigation, autocomplete, and managing packages with many files.

    Review ofCodioCodio

    I think, this is the best online IDE nowadays. I'm using it for months. Fast, cool, easy to use. I have a license for PhpStorm (but I'm using it for Nodejs/Angularjs now), but I almost never use my desktop IDE because Codio is the first for which can really replace it. I simply don't need anything else. And for $8 you can work on unlimited private projects! That's cool. I also loved the support and the way they communicated, when there was a problem with the service. Their communication was honest and quick.

    Review ofCloud9 IDECloud9 IDE

    I've tried to use Cloud9, but I really don't like it. They say it has real-time collaboration, and it does — but only for 2 people, because the backend shuts everything down and lets nobody access anything if more than 2 people want to use it. The UI looks pretty bad, Cloud9 is completely inaccessible from mobile devices, and it freezes my computer because it uses so much memory. It's free and they will host your files for free, but I much prefer GitHub.

    I don't like Cloud9 because when several people(even 4) are on the workspace, the entire thing lags out. Really frustrating

    I use Cloud9 as my preferred Rails development environment. It saves me a lot time and trouble compared to developing locally (I run Windows).

    Quick testing of frameworks without having to install on my own PC.

    Very useful when you cannot use your own computer.
