Where did file revision history go in Cloud 9?


The Cloud 9 IDE used to have the File Revision History feature to go back and forth in a file’s history that was useful when making quick software prototypes.

The feature seems to have been removed in the newer releases.

Is there a way to still access it?


It hasn’t been removed, it’s under File -> Show file revision history do you not see that in your workspace?


I haven’t seen it there for a while. It’s not there, as you can see from the screenshot. Maybe it is because we are using on premise version. I remember last time seeing that feature about year ago and then it disappeared after an update…


Ah ok, for the standalone version of the IDE you need to start it with the --collab flag to make this work (the file revision history is handled by the collaboration mode)
