Cloud9 an Online IDE for writing Codes | Working Experience Merits and Demerits

Personal experience of Working on Cloud9 IDE

A month earlier i was newbie for online IDE like Cloud9. I need to complete angular-phonecat app via cloud9, as the name defines angular-phonecat is a Open source tutorial offered by At the start i don't make seperate id for Cloud9 as i was able to sign in with github account.

Creating Workspace is quite easy in Cloud, all you need to do is just click on create a new workspace and give it a name and  your workspace will be ready to work in short while.

Problems i have faced:  The location where webserver is started http://localhost:8000/app/index.html was not accessible either from c9 interface or in browser.

When i run protractor it was unable to capture browser in 6000ms and the process is killed.

For the above reasons i was unable to write unit test for  Angular-phonecat app by own on cloud9
