Cloud9 IDE Supports Client-Side API on Google Chrome
At the Google I/O developer conference, Cloud9 IDE announces support for new client-side file system API on Google's Chrome OS.Cloud9 IDE has announced a private beta preview of its support for the proposed W3C client-side file system standard employed in recent versions of Google Chrome, and full integration with the Google App Engine. Cloud9 IDE, which provides a cloud-based IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for Web and mobile apps, launched this new facility that provides Chrome OS support, making Cloud9 IDE a key method for creating applications on Google's CR-48 Chrome-based notebook, both on and off the cloud.
The new integrated solution enables developers to create their development project in Cloud9, and then test and run their code on the Google architecture. With the full support for the new file system (FS), Chrome app developers can cache their files in the local FS API and continue working when they go offline, and then automatically re-sync when they go back onto the Cloud9 IDE, to continue editing in the cloud, Cloud9 IDE officials said.
