Cloud based Web Development

With so much of the traditional, desktop-based productivity software we know and love moving to the Cloud, it’s no surprise that Cloud-based IDEs are quickly gaining ground with developers.

Nowadays, the browser is essentially a thin client that allows users to access a variety of Cloud-based applications and services. However, many are still hesitant to put their full faith in a remote Cloud IDE for development purposes. Tools like Github and Pastebin helped to ease the transition to Cloud-based development, and full-fledged Cloud IDEs are now commonly used by many developers.

Here are 13 of the best Cloud IDEs you can get your hands on and a quick summation of each.

After a few minutes using the appropriately named Cloud9, you’ll feel like you’ve died and gone to coder heaven. The front end is all Javascript, while the back end relies on the popular NodeJS framework. Though it’s favored by UI designers and developers, it has syntax highlighting for C#, C++, Python, Perl, Ruby, Scala and a few others as well.

The built-in Vim mode is a nice touch, as is the support for popular revision control systems like Git, Mercurial and SVN. Thanks to the inclusion of CSSLint and JSBeautify, it’s also one of the prettier environments found online.

Another software development tool that frequently tops the various "best of" lists floating around the Web is Codeanywhere, the friendly Cloud IDE for all seasons. It features code highlighting and support for HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL and more. Thanks to the available slew of handy apps for iOS, Android and BlackBerry, this tool enables anyone to code literally anywhere.

In addition, it boasts Dropbox and SFTP support, which allow coders to easily backup project files and share them with collaborators. Though it’s not the most full-featured Cloud IDE, it does what it does quite well.

While they obviously didn’t spend a lot of time coming up with a catchy name, the folks behind Cloud IDE put some serious effort into crafting a platform that just works. Otherwise known as eXo Cloud IDE, it’s a solid Cloud contender that supports the usual languages like Javascript, Ruby, Groovy, Java and HTML to name just a few.

In particular, eXo Cloud is well suited to coders who specialize in Java programming. It supports Java servlets and Java Server Pages, as well as Maven. Deployment is handled by Heroku, CloudBees, Red Hat OpenShift and Cloud Foundry.

Google Chrome is coming on strong as of late, surpassing Mozilla’s Firefox and taking a shot at Internet Explorer for the title of browser supremacy. Sourcekit is a Textmate-like IDE that relies on Dropbox for storage and provides a responsive environment for web developers.
