AWS Developer Tools : Cloud9
AWS offers a lot of services for Developers and in this article i am gonna present you one of them : Cloud9
What is Cloud 9 ?
AWS Cloud9 is a cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) that lets you write, run, and debug your code with just a browser.
It includes a code editor, debugger, and terminal.
When using Cloud9, you can do everything without leaving the AWS Console.
You can write, test and run your code with just a browser.
How can i use it ?
Requirement : you need an AWS account
Connect to your AWS Console and search for Cloud 9
Then you are gonna click on Create Environment
Choose a name for your Environment, then click on Next Step.
Now choose the settings for the instance:
=> Select the one available for the free tier.
=> Then choose the platform : select Amazon Linux 2 and hit Next Step
The last screen is the review, check that everything is what you want.
When it's done, hit Create Environment
It's gonna take a few minutes to create your environment :
Once it's over, you are going to have a full environment, ready to code.
What have we done here ?
Just to make you understand, here, with a few clicks, we created a new EC2 instance with Amazon Linux installed on it.
Go on the console > EC2 > Running instances
Here is your instance running :)
You have now a full Linux computer on the cloud, ready for your app.
But you don't need to install an IDE and all the stuff.
It's ready for you !
Start writing your code !
