how to install cloud9 IDE on ubuntu server

I have a development server which runs mostly python-based apps. I like the interface of tools like cloud9, but since I have a server I'd rather have something similar on my own server. This is what I mean by "self-hosting". I only need to edit local files (ie, files on that server).

The server is running Ubuntu server 12.04. cloud9 is apparently available for self-hosting, but I have never used node.js and I don't want to learn about it if possible. I know that cloud 9 also offer ssh integration with other servers, but I'm hoping to find a package I can easily install on Ubuntu and easily configure.

There is a similar question on stackoverflow but from 2009.

 

Cloud9's git repository and instructions have changed since the other answer was posted. See https://github.com/c9/core/ for more information. The following instructions seem to work for me on a vanilla Ubuntu 14.04.

  1. Install Git if you haven't already:

    sudo apt-get update && apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get install git
  2. Install node.js if you don't already have a recent version installed:

    # Install node.js
    wget -O  ~/node-v0.10.33-linux-x64.tar.gz http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.10.33/node-v0.10.33-linux-x64.tar.gz
    tar -zxf ~/node-v0.10.33-linux-x64.tar.gz
    rm       ~/node-v0.10.33-linux-x64.tar.gz
    echo 'export PATH=$PATH:~/node-v0.10.33-linux-x64/bin' >> ~/.bashrc
    source ~/.bashrc
  3. Download and setup Cloud9:

    # Setup and start Cloud9 server
    # (You can get a zip file instead of using git)
    git clone https://github.com/c9/core.git c9sdk
    c9sdk/scripts/install-sdk.sh
  4. After the server starts successfully, you can stop it with Ctrl-C. Then you can start it with a different workspace:

    node c9sdk/server.js -w ~/my_workspace/
  5. Visit http://localhost:8181 to see the Cloud9 IDE in your browser.

If you don't like the self-hosted Cloud9 web-IDE, you can try OrionCodiad, or Codebox.
