Our main goals are:

Cloud 9 and Koding

How to view your running application in Cloud 9. In package.json, add this line in the scripts section:

"c9": "node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server --host $IP --port $PORT"

Perhaps like this:

"scripts": {
 "start": "node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server",
 "test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1",
 "build": "node_modules/.bin/webpack",
 "c9": "node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server --host $IP --port $PORT",

Now run it: npm run c9

Select, from near the top of the C9 IDE: Preview | Preview Running Application. A window opens with your app in it. You can optionally grab that URL and put it in a new tab for your browser.

This is mostly an FYI. These days, Cloud 9 ought to work fairly well out of the box.

Here are some links and a video that might help you work on Cloud 9 or if either of those options appeal to you. These are from my 2016 course, and may not apply to the modernized Cloud 9 we are finding now.

Some older Videos:


In the VirtualBox Manager, choose Settings | System | Acceleration and confirm that VT-x | AMD-V is selected. You can confirm this at run time by selecting Machine | System Info. If you don't have virtualization help from the processor then your VM will either be very slow, or not work at all.
