Sharing with people who do not have an account

I am a student going to a STEM school, and I would like to work on projects on c9.io with classmates, but they cannot get accounts due to the need of a credit card, and therefore we are forced to use suboptimal software instead. Since I do have an account, is there any way I can grant a type of guest access to a repository? Or is there some other way to collaborate with people without an account?

Thanks!

Unfortunately not. Besides giving them access, there’s not a whole lot you can do to give them access. Given you are at a STEM school, however, I would suggest that you and your classmates explain what you are trying to do to your teachers, and see if they can purchase the Education plan. This will allow your classmates to join without a credit card, and they can collaborate with you in your workspaces. Good luck!
