Visual Studio Code + Cloud9


#1

Is it possible to use Visual Studio Code as a desktop IDE for my Cloud 9 workspace?

I saw there was a plugin available for VSCode – Live Sync for AWS Cloud 9. However, my Cloud 9 account predates the acquisition by Amazon, and as a result I don’t actually have an AWS account – all I have is my Cloud 9 account. So I don’t have any idea where to go for information such as the AWS IAM Key Pair, which the plugin needs in order to operate.

Of course, if there’s a much simpler way to accomplish all this, I’d love to know about it. Sorry for the n00bish questions – I’ve been a developer for many years, but this is my first time working with AWS or cloud-based platforms such as Cloud 9, and it’s all very foreign to me right now.
