You Can Now Edit Code Through a Web IDE

The new Web IDE allows you to view and edit your files using a browser from everywhere through the Cloudnode Developer Shell. You have Linux tools, Cloudnode tools and Docker at your fingertips no matter what client computer you are using.

The Web IDE is based on Eclipse Orion, which aims to give you an always accessible development environment without setup and configuration. The Orion service runs on your VM as long as your shell is running.

The new code editor is part of the Linux-based Developer Shell which allows you to work from everywhere. You only need a browser and an internet connection. Forget about installing and upgrading Node.js, Git or Cloudnode client tools. They are all up-to-date and ready-to-use.
