Installing C9 packages using GitHub credentials


#1

I am trying to run the following:
{{c9 install c9.ide.desktop}}

My c9 account is logged into using my GitHub creds, but when I run the above command, it asks for my user name and password. I’ve tried using my GitHub login, but it doesn’t work. Does anyone know where I’m going wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Dan

You’ll need to add a password to your cloud9 account using https://c9.io/account/settings.
Github password works only on github, cloud9 can’t use it in any way.
