We’ll definitely take a look into this in the future as well
Thank you for that. A post from an Amazon employee in the AWS forum suggested that this feature was never coming back. I am glad to hear the restoring this feature is still a possibility.
I know there are workarounds with SFTP and the like, but users typically use Cloud 9 for the web interface. We don’t want to have to mess with an SFTP client on our own computer. Or maybe we are on a co-worker or friend’s computer and just want to grab a file or two for them to use locally. Download and configuring SSH and/or SFTP software is inconvenient.
You loose some of the power and benefit of using a Cloud IDE when you remove features from the web interface.
I would be happy with restricting downloads to single files (I can tar and zip multiples myself) if that makes the dev easier. I just don’t understand why an existing feature was removed.
