"The best IDE for development"

What do you like best?

Cloud9 is a great tool of AWS what I like most about it is the ease with which it can be used, has a very comfortable infrastructure that gives you the option to customize it to 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 price we only pay for our instance in EC2.

What do you dislike?

I have not found anything bad like this in this software the only thing I can say against it is what should be informed about its integration with other AWS tools in order to implement 100%

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Cloud9 is ideal for teamwork so do not hesitate to implement it if your work involves this because it will make it easier and bearable because once the code is in the cloud any team member can access it from anywhere

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

I take advantage of the tools that AWS Cloud9 gives me for the development of different software of our company since when working with this tool it is much easier to integrate the other development members once the code is in the cloud.

"Strong IDE Online"

What do you like best?

The best thing is AWS C9 is online, i don't need to install anything, and it support the most used languages, as C, Java, PHP, Python, etc. I can code from my mobil, tablet, pc, from anywhere, and i can share my code live with my co-work team, and we can code at the same time thats just amazing only need update the website to see the changes and run the app/website, also it help to write code faster with shortcuts, can create files, delete, change, create folder, is so powerful. One of the best thing is also how i can still using key shortcuts to save file, or save all as i do on my pc, i can upload or download complete projects and use on my desktop/laptop with one click and it is already compresed. It can be free but also, can be slow, but you can upgrade the EC2 PC to increase the performance.

What do you dislike?

The only thing what i dislike is there isn't a key shortcut to run the app, is annoying to move the mouse only to click on RUN to compile the project. It can be free but also, can be slow depends of the project, but upgrading the EC2 pc it can be solved.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is a free tier, which is more than enough for small projects, use it, test it, is very powerful tool, if you feel it is slow to compile, just upgrade your EC2 PC. Use it to do remote team work, for web development, app, software. AWS C9 work perfect with others AWS tools, like AWS Commit, Lambda, you can do big projects with them.

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

It let me to write code from anywhere, and i dont have to be always with my laptop, or need to install any other IDE, and save all the problems which can happen when installing them. Is so helpful for SCRUM projects, it let work more than one people from remote location at the same time, with the same code thats is wonderful.

"very good IDE"

What do you like best?

I truly like this IDE in light of the fact that it can give me the easiest and most helpful instruments while doing my work, since it incorporates apparatuses dependent on the most widely recognized dialects ​​and interestingly, I can work from anyplace that approaches the web what is extremely agreeable on the grounds that it isn't important to be secured my office.

What do you dislike?

It very well may be free yet in addition, can be moderate depends of the task, yet redesigning the EC2 pc it tends to be understood.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use AWS Cloud9 alongside different AWS instrument, as codedeploy, pipeline, cloud watch, and so on. Every one of them together works simply flawless. Keep in mind you can sign in from any gadget to aws site, that is mean you can compose code from any gadget.

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

We use it for altering lambda works that comprise of more than one record. It is for the most part useful for testing little changes or brisk grimy hotfixes...

"Easy to use Code editor but runs with compliance issues"

What do you like best?

It's really easy to use and makes life really simple. I really find it useful because of the following reasons:

1. no need to add credentials to any machine, so need to worry it about going to bad hands

2. awesome integration with other aws services such as s3, lambda etc. Infact lambda uses cloud9 as the code editor

What do you dislike?

I have run into compliance issues at one of the companies I worked for and I had to really work out with the IT to get this sorted. It was painful, but if you don't have any issues that should be fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please make sure that the cloud9 runs on the instance and is compliant

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

There is no such problem to solve, infact I use to make it useful and easy to write code on AWS. Typically I will do development on local machine or on EC2, but cloud9 takes that away. That is the benefit I will say. Moreover, it shuts down the machine if not being used which needs to be taken care of with aws ec2

"Nice tool for editing your lambda functions"

What do you like best?

I think it is handy when you need to make small changes to a lambda function and you don't want to go through the process of uploading and publishing your function again...

What do you dislike?

I guess it still has a lot of ground to cover to be a real IDE.

There are too many plugins and tools that compose a good IDE (such as VS Code) which are not present in Cloud9

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not ready to become your go-to IDE, but it helps when having to manually edit or work on lambda functions.

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

We use it for editing lambda functions that consist of more than one file. It is mainly good for testing small changes or quick dirty hotfixes...

For our production lambda functions we use a CI/CD pipeline instead.

"Strong online IDE"

What do you like best?

AWS Clould9 is amazing, the best thing is, i can use all language on the same IDE without change or install anything, it runs totally online, i just need open the IDE and i can use and compile many diferents language, and it is free it has the same shortcuts as others IDE so is very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The only thing what i dislike from AWS Cloud9 is, there is not a offline version too, this is one of the best IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use AWS Cloud9 along with other AWS tool, as codedeploy, pipeline, cloud watch, etc. All of them together works just perfect. Remember you can log in from any device to aws website, thats mean you can write code from any device.

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

AWS Cloud9 is very useful to developt software on team, because it can be use for more than one people at the same time, so i can share the code live with my co-work, another benefit from it is i don't need to worry about install anything i just can run Could9 from any device and start write.

"Cloud9 is an awesome IDE"

What do you like best?

An all-in-one interface to easily build, test, and run apps in various frameworks. Easy to install modules, sdks, set up databases etc. Huge pluses: Integration with other AWS services & APIs, access & collaboration from anywhere, solid editor, syntax highlighting, lots of helpful built in functions.

What do you dislike?

Some of the documentation can be a little confusing initially and requires some digging around, particularly topics like how Cloud 9 integrates with other AWS services, configuring IAM accounts, that sort of thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Review the documentation thoroughly, especially command line operations. Be fluent with linux basics, bash etc., and familiar with directory structures of whatever frameworks you're using.

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

I'm finding it perfect for small ad hoc web applications, scripts, procedures that don't require a costly or overly elaborate hosting environment. Easily run tests & preview results right from the command line

"Great environment for developing workflows"

What do you like best?

I like that all my shell sessions are active, so when I log in at home everything is where it was without me resorting to screen or tmux sessions.

What do you dislike?

Lacks the tabular viewers available in RStudio. Lacks some basic text manipulation plugins you would find in TextMate.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely try Cloud9 if you are using AWS and have to switch between editing and the shell.

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

I write bioinformatic pipelines, Django apps, and perform DevOps work in Cloud9

"AWS Cloud9 is the IDE for all AWS workloads"

What do you like best?

I love notebooks and IDEs and while I prefer to run them on my local machine or an EC2 instance, running code on AWS Cloud9 makes it much simpler. I don't have to worry about privileges or getting the access key, just attach the necessary role and it works like a charm. Also, access data in between is fast.

What I also like is AWS kills AWS Cloud9 instance if not used for 30 mins, which saves me money in case I forgot, especially on weekends.

The output from the code can be seen right then and there.

What do you dislike?

Although I didn't find anything wrong with AWS Cloud9, I would say I did had some issue with VPC arrangement. Also, it doesn't work with all the other services.

I ran into many compliance issues and has to stop using this for a full fledged exercise.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It would be better if you have working knowledge of linux and have worked with an IDE before.

There is a free tier that should be used before going for a paid service so that you can be hands on the service. Unlike sagemaker, the training/ stuff happens on the instance so make sure the size is correct.

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

I was trying to experiment on AWS Cloud9 to share screen with other colleagues in case I have an issue while I was away from office

"My new favorite Dev Tool"

What do you like best?

The built in EC2 feature which allows me to open a shell from the container. I can write and run code at the same time!

What do you dislike?

It is a little slow. I think once this software gets bigger then that will be resolved.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is no mobile support, but I really recommend you try it. I was hesitant but it's saved me a ton of time.

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

I can make apps much faster and can do it from anywhere! I can save my code on my desktop then pull it up where I left off on any PC with a web browser.

"Great IDE services."

What do you like best?

It's quite suited for writing server side code. Love sharing my workspaces with others and the auto-complete is very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

The shared terminal windows are a bit buggy at times, and I wish it had a way to "publish" something to a remote server, without the need for fancy scripts.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great for small development teams, or even the solo programmer. The interface is easy to use and is extremely intuitive.

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

Colleagues and I no longer overwrite each others files by mistake! I also like not having to maintain multiple servers/services.

"Giving me errors that are not there"

What do you like best?

It's everything I need and can host an entire website off it.

What do you dislike?

It gives you errors even though there are none at all, (I reviewed my code more than once and I still get an error), there are way too many tabs and buttons without clear instruction to what they do or how to get back to where you just were.

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

You can build an entire website off it given that you have the right knowledge and tools.

What do you like best?

AWS Cloud 9 makes it very easy for collaborative work and to easily work on projects together with your team members.

Speed and memory can lag at times. The user interface is not amazing for handling these kind of issues. Once we ran out of memory space and we were unable to easily calibrate cloud 9 for our requirements.

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

Working on internal group projects together to solve problems together with the team. Benefits: easy to collaborate, easy to set up virtual env

"Great collaborative editor"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use and fast. Magical to do Google-Docs style collaboration inside an IDE.

Setup requires technical know-how, but you probably have that anyway if you're considering this.

Well worth trying.

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

We've used Cloud9 for years, mostly for onboarding new remote developers. It saves having to ship them expensive hardware before they've visited our HQ, and allows more experienced developers to coach and review their code before they even commit it.

What do you like best?
