Use Cloud9 IDE on existing websites/webapps?


#1

Hi I was looking for a way to connect the cloud nine interface to existing webservers, preferably via FTP, and edit files on the webserver directly. Like codeAnywhere.com does. Is this possible?


#2

And why you don’t use Vim and edit it on the server?


#3

@texxs you can use ftp mount feature, see https://docs.c9.io/docs/ftp-mounts

Thanks! (very much, is this 20 chars long now?)

Cus I was looking for something I don’t have to install. Plus I’m not a big fan of Vim.

To anyone else trying this, read the directions in the link carefully. You have to enable this feature and these directions tell you how. It’s easy but this step is easy to miss.
