AWS Cloud9 is great for product engineering and coding where you must take time to pair program and code in a specific isolated environment. It is entirely cloud based so there's no worry about saving and data consistency. It is all hosted on the Amazon Web Services cloud. It is less appropriate for more general workflows that don't require a specific cloud instance.

My CMS has a small window in which I can edit custom HTML/CSS. It can be expanded some, but not as much as I would like. It also displays all code as dark text on a white background. On a page where I am doing extensive custom coding, it is helpful to see it in a larger window and in a color-coded display so that I don't have to strain my eyes as hard. Especially when I'm trying to scan for specific elements and target issues and so that I don't have to scroll endlessly in a tiny window.

Cons

Amazon AWS

  • Confusing documentation - AWS's documentation remains quite confusing, and the layout of other services/settings that you have to use with Cloud9 can be a bit of a handful.
  • Sometimes slow - As the size of a project increases, the editor gets increasingly slower, and starts slowing down the browser overall.
  • Long setup process - The setup for Cloud9 can be hard and tough, especially since the documentation is quite hard to understand.

  • Plugins are easier to use and less complicated but transferring your license to a new computer isn't as simple as it sounds.
  • Sublime has an automatic file comparison feature, but it's challenging to use and should be improved.
  • Adding the ability to mark or highlight the text with different colors would be an excellent application.

    I love this application. It has helped to improve my work. Also, I became so used to the shortcuts that It's hard for me to change to another editor.

    Usability

    Amazon AWS

    The interface for Cloud9 needs some improvement. It is simply not as powerful and intelligent as a local text editor would be and thus it lacks the capabilities of fast filling when coding. Otherwise, I think it has a fair interface that they have tried mimicking an IDE.

    This is a programmers tool. As such a lot of the features and benefits are lost on a non-technical user. To get the most out of the tool you need to have a basic crash course in how it works and what it can do. The documentation and community are good, but it takes a bit of time to get up to speed.

    Customer support is managed by the Cloud support team. I won't be able to comment on details, but it's fast.

    Never had to use their customer support before. There is ample documentation online so it's straightforward to find a solution to any problem you might encounter. For example, I needed to convert a string of HTML code to a properly formatted HTML file to "modify." Easy to do when there are so many users of the product who have needed to do that same thing before.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon AWS

    [AWS] Cloud9 offers specific features not available in the competition: Code collaboration using the chat features is the highlight which sets it apart. [The] code completion feature makes [it] very similar to the offline IDE like eclipse. It's much easier to use compared to Codeanywhere. It provides terminal access to EC2 instances and hence other amazon services.

    We've used both Notepad++ and Atom; both are great but nothing really beats the Sublime Text UI; super intuitive and friendly and does everything you need without overwhelming you with stuff you don't. Other options are free, but for our organization, it was well worth the small license cost for the persistent use of a great product.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon AWS

    • Positive: No need to buy additional hardware to serve as buffer.
    • Negative: Service downtime causes significant productivity losses.
    • Negative: Users get locked into a certain subset of tools, which are not always appropriate.

    • Sublime Text has helped me to focus on specific tasks, cutting out the clutter that many other IDEs have. As such, it has helped me be a more productive employee because I don't get dazed by hundreds of buttons. I can focus on just the code.
    • Sublime Text is so affordable that it's a no-brainer to have an extra tool in your toolset.
    • The Search features of Sublime Text are so useful that it has saved me a great amount of time compared to using Find & Replace menus in Xcode, Android Studio, or Eclipse.
