Cloud9 User Script

Brian McKenna — 2011-09-04

This week I created a user script extension for Cloud9. The idea is to add something like the Emacs init file. It could also be thought of something like Greasemonkey.

You write some JavaScript and it is executed whenever Cloud9 is loaded. My idea behind this was to be able to extend the editor without changing anything server-side.

See the README for installation instructions. Once installed, a button will appear on the right dock:

Clicking it will present a code editor. This is where you type in your user script. When you’re ready, press Control+Shift+E to evaluate and save the script.

Clone the repository and try it out!
