Cloud9 IDE on Intel Edison Mini Breakout Board Kit

Jump to solution

Hi,

there are many IDEs out there, but few like https://c9.io/ Cloud9 - Your development environment, in the cloud that incoroprate 40 programming languages https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud9_IDE Cloud9 IDE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia including pythonhttps://www.python.org/ Welcome to Python.org. and are 100% cloud based. I realize that Intel is supporting https://eclipse.org/home/index.php Eclipse - The Eclipse Foundation open source community website., but this IDE does not include python.

Some people (http://www.instructables.com/id/Cloud-9-IDE-on-Intel-Edison/ Cloud 9 IDE on Intel Edison and http://navinbhaskar.blogspot.de/2015/08/cloud-9-ide-on-edison.html ctrl-x ctrl-s: Cloud 9 IDE on Edison and https://scratchbuffer.wordpress.com/2015/07/13/my-personal-guide-to-intel-edison/ My Personal Guide to Intel Edison | *scratch buffer*) have described how to install Cloud9 on the Intel Edison, but this requires an SD card workaround due the rootfs space limitations on the eMMC. However, mini breakout board users like myself don't have the option to use the SD workaround.

Is there another way to install Cloud9, i.e. by resizing the rootfs space or even better?

Thanks,

WX3080

Hi WX3080,

You can try to connect an SD card interface to your Mini Breakout Board, in which case I would suggest you check the Schematic of the Arduino Expansion Board, specifically the

section for the SD card. There's a thread already opened where this is discussed /thread/68367 https://communities.intel.com/thread/68367.

You can also try increasing the size of "root" as you already stated. According to this thread /thread/55612 https://communities.intel.com/thread/55612, you can adjust the size of the partitions.

I see the whole point of that helper script is to install additional packages from sources - I'll see if I could add those to the repo.

I've added all the prerequisite libraries into the repo, as well as Node.js 0.12.x. The approach used in referenced scripts/blogs installs Cloud9 SDK on top of that and then runs the server out of it, which communicates to the Cloud9 cloud. I don't think it makes sense to package this piece, because they are using a shell script as an official install method and it essentially downloads and installs a bunch of npm modules - which as easily done by using the script itself as using opkg, or maybe even easier, as npm handles a lot of stuff automatically.
