I'm interested in using the AWS Cloud9 service to do some web dev. In the past I experimented a bit with the old Cloud9 service, before it was bought by Amazon, so I've got some idea of what the actual development environment is like and I'm pretty sure it'll do what I want (mainly just smallish websites with PHP and MySQL).

 

The one sticking point I've come up with is how do I deploy my work to the live hosting server. Normally I just FTP the files from my local PC to the host. Is it possible to FTP files from within AWS Cloud9 to a web server?

I had a quick look at the FAQ. Looks like you set up integration and it deploys for you. I haven't used that service. Might find the answer on a blog / tutorial perhaps?

Yeah I tried Googling "aws cloud9 ftp" but couldn't find anything much. I did find an article that said it was possible with the old Cloud9 service by installing LFTP (a command line FTP tool). Since AWS Cloud9 runs on an EC2 instance I guess you can install whatever you want and access it through Cloud9's command line, but a GUI FTP tool would be nicer than a command line one! smile

It does say it will deploy to your EC2 instance, your on premise instance, or Lambda. Have a read of this and this. You might be able to use CloudStar to deploy to wherever you like. I doubt it'll be FTP, that's not very cloud native. AWS has a fully integrated CI/CD pipeline, it probably hooks in with that.

Thanks timmmay, I'll do some experimenting and see what I can get working.

 

Apparently Codeanywhere has a feature that lets you access files remotely and FTP is one of the connections they support. I just assumed that this would be pretty standard for cloud-based development; after doing your development you need a way to push the files out to wherever they're needed (a web server, Github, etc).

I would have thought you'd just use the AWS CodePipeline to deploy it.  Then you can dev "anywhere" and just push it to your repository and let CodePipeline take care of the rest.  See: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cloud9/latest/user-guide/codepipeline-repos.html
