How can I edit cloud9 files locally with my preferred editor?


#1

All the sftp-type solutions I’ve found so far solve the reverse of this problem: how to edit in cloud9 and then upload to a remote server. But for class, cloud9 happens to be my remote server. I just want to be able to … ideally, mount an sftp endpoint in my windows 10 machine with software like SFTP Net Drive, and then edit my code and manage my project in my perferred editor Intellij Idea.

We don’t allow users to SSH into hosted workspaces, so there’s no way to edit in-flight aside from using the IDE/terminal in Cloud9. You can manually download and re-upload files if you’d like, or you can alternately create an SSH workspace and run the IDE against the hardware of your choice.
