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. On the other hand, PyCharm is detailed as "The Most Intelligent Python IDE". PyCharm’s smart code editor provides first-class support for Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, CSS, popular template languages and more. Take advantage of language-aware code completion, error detection, and on-the-fly code fixes!.

Reviews of Cloud9 IDE and PyCharm
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 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.

Review ofCloud9 IDECloud9 IDE

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

PyCharm is our preferred IDE for python apps, for all its simple awesomeness in writing code, as well as the ease with which you can run a Django shell, a web server, or run tests.

I use the clound9 IDE mainly in my training courses: Students don't need to install anything on their Laptops to participate in the live exercises.

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.

I used pycharm for Machine learning. Then I switched back to sublime and I am going to try atom now.

Free for community projects... Must try for those looking for Python IDEs. Works out of the box.
