Since Amazon recently fully integrated Cloud9 into their AWS service, the interface has become quite unfriendly for students just starting out. There no longer even seems to be an option to create a new workspace with a particular template. Considering that we're teaching Ruby on Rails, the option of generating a barebones app with GUI interface was very appealing.
I've seen some alternatives out there but haven't tried them yet:
- Koding - Replit - Plunker - Visual Studio Code with LiveShare
I'd love to know if there's a good alternative that comes close to the old version of Cloud9?
