An integrated development environment (IDE) provides a set of coding productivity tools such as a source code editor, a debugger, and build tools.

We recommend the following best practices for using your AWS Cloud9:

  • Use source control and backup your environment frequently. AWS Cloud9 does not perform automatic backups.

  • Perform regular updates of software on your environment. AWS Cloud9 does not perform automatic software updates.
