Use Codio with fortrabbit
Just a quicky: How to use Codio and fortrabbit.
Codio is a new, amazing online code editor. As it supports deploying your code via Git, there is nothing stopping you from connecting it via fortrabbit and code away!
Of course you need a Codio and a fortrabbit account. Also create a new App with fortrabbit (or use an existing one..).
Connect Codio and fortrabbit
First you need a Codio (and of course a fortrabbit) account. Once you've signed up, just click on the "Codio" button in the upper left corner and choose "Account..".
Now switch to the "SSH Key" tab and copy the key.
Login to fortrabbit, go to your App and add the Key in the Git tab. Once this is done, you can create a new project on Codio by pasting your App's Git URL (can be found in the App's overview in the dashboard).
Hello World & first deploy
If you've cloned a new App, then it contains no files. So just create an
index.php and fill it with something important: Open the Git console (Tools -> Git -> Command Line) add your new
index.php, then commit and push: And there you go. Thats about it. The response should look like this:
And what about composer?
Sure thing. Create your
composer.json file in Codio. I've put
slim/slim in it, for this demo: Now the same again: Add, commit and push. Mark the
[trigger:composer] part in the commit message: And in the push response message you can see that composer is installed. And that's it for now. Codio is not the only text editor for your browser. There are also: CodeEnvy, Cloud9, CodeAnyWhere, Koding, FriendCode, Neptune IDE and probably a few others. Also there is also the great CodeMirror project. Want more?
