How to preview your application in the second window?


#1

I know this is probably a really simple question with a really simple answer, but I’m new to cloud 9 and can’t quite figure out how to preview my application in a second window while editing the css. Is there something I’m missing here? Thank you.

No problem @sophietelz :grinning:

It’s a little different depending on how you’re trying to run it. If you run it from a command in the terminal, something to start your server like this in django for example python ./manage.py runserver $IP:$PORT, then you’ll get a little window that pops up if the server started in a C9 friendly way:

Or if you’re previewing a static file, you go to “Preview -> Live Preview Files”:

Hope this helps. :innocent:


The server might be running on a different port; make sure it's on port $PORT with $IP as the IP address
