What do you like best?

AWS is very stable, it always works and their are never errors in documents like wipe outs compare to other online IDE. The collaborator "mode" is very simple and works just like a google drive document where you see life the changes the other person is making, without any conflict. It's fast and once you close the tab it stays exactly like you left it which is very nice to keep the work flowing rapidly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The downsides are first the most important one which search input could be easier to use and the find in file option should be the one that is displayed always on top of the files. The autocomplete isn't that function when you compare it to vs code or sublime but it sometimes gives you a shortcode. The last one, which is not that vital is the UI isn't that modern or nice, it feels like an old software but it definitely doesn't behave that way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

None, it's pretty straight forward and it gives the programmer a lot stability. Great for multiple users at the same time, works just like a drive document. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is a great IDE that can be used from any place where you have a connection to an internet network.It offers programming languages ​​mostly used for the development of applications or software.Allows collaboration through code, allowing you to interact with the other person.Its interface is very simple and easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

According to the project that is being executed it can become slow.It does not have the basic text manipulators.Shared terminals sometimes take a while to display. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is ideal to work in collaboration since when exchanging ideas and coding in real time the development of the project becomes much simpler and more productive. It is the perfect tool to save time since it is not necessary to configure any file or prepare the computer. This is because it is in the cloud and offers everything necessary so that we simply have to write, execute or debug our code using the language of programming that we want. If you want to work on a very large project it can be somewhat complicated because it allows the collaboration between two people so the completion of it can be durable.

I had personally used the AWS Cloud9 tool for learning and practicing the fundamentals of coding. It is the best online IDE tool for testing your code syntax and also check your errors in the code as well. It is very easy to use and also very easy to understand. There are lots of features provided by this software for example tool is totally online no need to download and configure the tool in the system you have internet you can easily use this tool by this going your system browser and also Store your project’s files locally as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is no doubt that AWS Cloud9 is the best online programming tool for using development purposes.But, I would like to suggest some areas of improvement needed for this tool, for example, my coding files should be syn with my Gmail, dropbox and with other third-party storage service providers and also I think user interface needs improvement as well.

Cloud9 is very effective in case we need an IDE for various environment and a small project, script or testing quick solution.

What do you like best?

I think it's great that this environment is based on the cloud, so it is very useful in shared programming projects, it is compatible with many programming languages, so in this way it can be used in pairs or even in group programming since everyone has access to the source code and it is easily modifiable even everyone working their part separately another of its strengths is that you do not need to download any software or application and everything is ready to use.

What do you like best?

AWS Cloud9 has support for a wide variety of programming languages meaning that the user does not need to download many different IDEs and deal with many compilers. Organizing between languages is very easy and can be done by using typical Windows/Mac method or by using the bash line.

Bash line is built into Cloud9, making the software even more convenient. Rather than installing a Unix based operating system or Windows 10, users can use the bash line from any OS. This becomes very useful for programmers that may be using an iPad or ChromeOS.

Perhaps my favourite feature of Cloud9 is cloud functionality. All programs are saved in the cloud, meaning that I can access them from whichever device I want to. When I'm outside, I tend to code using my Mac. At home, however, I vastly prefer using my desktop. It's incredibly nice that I don't need to use a service such as GitHub or use a flash drive to transfer files back and forth and deal with compatibility issues. This makes my workflow cleaner and simpler. It makes me more productive too.

Cloud9's interface is very clean and simple to use. This is, of course, subjective, but I think most people would agree. Coming from IDEs such as PyCharm and Visual Studio, it was refreshing to see such a simplistic design in the coding environment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a big fan of the tab management of Cloud9. When you exit out of Cloud9 and re-open the IDE, tabs that were previously open are opened. Over time, when many files have been used, the tab manager becomes cluttered with unnecessary programs. I would prefer an empty tab manager on each use of the IDE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to back up programs often on Cloud9. I have heard of people losing their environments due to problems with the service. It should be noted, though, that I've only heard of this happening once. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Cloud9 to program in C++. When I first started using Cloud9, I was relatively inexperienced with C++. Right from the beginning, one of the major benefits I have noticed was not needing to download an IDE and deal with different settings. Cloud9 made it easy to just jump into coding while still keeping me organized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Cloud9 is an awesome tool of AWS. I like most about it is the way with which it can be used. It has a very comfortable framework that gives you the option to customize your liking by choosing colors for the syntax of the code, also has some very useful tools that include the most popular programming languages with which you can write your codes and then upload them to the cloud and in terms of its value we only pay for our instance in EC2. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I haven’t found something bad like this in this software the only thing against it is what should be informed about its integration with other AWS tools in order to implement 100% that’s all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure you have a total SOW and don't attempt to change the focal point of your project midstream. This will cause delays in your task and could make you be over budget. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The main problem is to have an interface where the developer feels to make a transition in the coding style, but with Cloud9, this problem is not there.

The platform provides a great environment to code without making the developer feel any difference with other IDEs as on-premise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
