Cloud9 provides an open source integrated development environment in the cloud. It supports more than 40 languages, with class A support for PHP, Ruby, Python, JavaScript/Node.js, and Go. It enables developers to get started with coding immediately with pre-setup environments (workspaces), collaborate with their peers with collaborative coding features, and web development features like live preview and browser compatibility testing.

It is written almost entirely in JavaScript, and uses Node.js on the back-end. The editor component uses Ace. As of July 2014, it uses Docker containers for its workspaces.[2] It is hosted on Google Compute Engine.[3]

Cloud9 IDE, Inc. is the company that actively maintains Cloud9 IDE. The company has offices in San Francisco and Amsterdam.
