Save your Code Revisions Forever with Git


  1. We'll build this Waypoint on Cloud 9, a powerful online code editor with a full Ubuntu Linux workspace, all running in the cloud.
  2. If you don't already have Cloud 9 account, create one now at http://c9.io.
  3. Open up http://c9.io and sign in to your account.
  4. Click on the "+" icon at the top right of the c9.io page to create a new workspace.
  5. Give your workspace a name and an optional description.
  6. Choose Node.js in the selection area below the name field.
  7. Click the "Create workspace" button.
  8. Once C9 builds and loads your workspace, you should see a terminal window in the lower right hand corner. In this window use the following commands. You don't need to know what these mean at this point.
