“There are certainly many compelling reasons for moving development to a web-only environment, but there have been some real roadblocks up until now,” said Al Hilwa, program director for IDC’s Application Development Software research. “Cloud9 IDE dials up this technology a few notches with capabilities such as real-time collaboration for remote teams, which will begin to deliver on the inherent value-proposition of development in the cloud.”

Cloud9 IDE’s industry-leading solutions usher in a new era for online development, providing developers with the freedom to build and deploy web and mobile apps online – anywhere, anytime. The key features highlighted in this next generation version of Cloud9 IDE include:

  • Real-Time Collaboration – Enables real-time editing, debugging and chat functionality for distributed teams. This enables those teams to peer review, pair-program or just support each other while building their applications.
  • Offline Support – Ability to access and edit local files for streamlined online/offline synchronization to the cloud.
  • Fast and Customizable User Interface – Allows developers more space to work via the fastest editor available today (offline or online), a powerful search tool, and a “go-to” file widget.
  • Your Workspace in the Cloud – Provides developers the ability to edit and run code with the freedom of the desktop; supports full shell access and the ability to run any language such as PHP, Python, Ruby and Node.js (premium feature).
  • Intelligent Auto Completion and Integrated Docs - Enables code suggestions with knowledge from the JavaScript language and Node.js APIs; embedded documentation helps developers better understand how the APIs work.

“It’s always been the Cloud9 IDE vision to deliver the complete desktop experience to developers working in the cloud, and today’s release marks a leap forward for the industry,” said Ruben Daniels, CEO and co-founder of Cloud9 IDE. “Now, web and mobile app development can fully be taken online for a truly untethered approach to build, test, debug and deploy code. These solutions will really empower development teams, and we look forward to seeing the innovative products that will emerge as a direct result.”

Cloud9 IDE supports open source development by offering its service for free, in addition to premium pricing for professional development and a highly discounted student rate.
