This page describes the old version of the sdk, see https://community.c9.io/t/distributing-and-installing-custom-cloud9-plugins/15168 for description of current method of loading packages
During the alpha release of the Cloud9 SDK, installing packages happens via the command line.
You can find a list of all published packages via the
This will present a list of all the names and description of the plugins that are currently installed.
Search through the list using grep:
c9 list | grep example
When you have found the package you'd like to install. Log into your workspace on c9.io and type:
c9 install c9.ide.example
c9.ide.example is the name of the plugin you wish to install.
If you wish to install a (public) package to develop on, use the
--debug flag to get the source from the git repo that holds the latest source of the package.
c9 install --debug c9.ide.example
This will check out the source of the package. Note that this package will only show up when starting Cloud9 in debug mode.
Remove a package with this command:
c9 remove c9.ide.example
Be careful, as this command will remove all the files from disk, even those that you have edited.
In addition you can find installed packages in the Preference panel (via
Cloud9/Preferences) in the
package manager tab and uninstall packages via that UI.
The beta version of the SDK will include a graphical interface for searching, selecting and installing packages.
