NITROUS.IO Box with Cloud9 IDE Editor



Nitrous.IO is a wonderful way to develop software in the cloud and I'm a participant from the first minute. The platform is still in BETA and lacks with a good code editor.



Cloud9 IDE exists since 2010 and offers cloud development as well as the Cloud9 IDE itself as open source on GitHub.

I love the Nitrous.IO and the Cloud9 IDE so I thought it would be cool to combine them to a unbeatable beast. I presume you created an account on both platforms to follow this Guide:

  1. Create a new NodeJS Box on Nitrous.IO
    nitro-step1
  2. Note the information about the new box
    nitro-step2
  3. Add a new SSH Workspace on Cloud9
    In my case the current version of node is v0.10.11 and is located in the Node Version Manager directory /home/action/.nvm/v0.10.11/bin/node. nitro-step3
  4. Copy the SSH Key shown in the Cloud9 window
  5. Create a new file on the Nitrous.IO under ~/.ssh/authorized_keys and paste the copied SSH Key as it is into the file. Save the file.
    nitro-step4
  6. You can now connect to the Nitrous.IO box via the Cloud9 IDE.

Enjoy C9 IDE code completion running on Nitrous.IO box (in this case a default Meteor project)
