Cloud9 / Linux Setup + Git Commands – DIY Twitter Clone #4

Today we setup Cloud9, giving us access to a FREE Linux development environment in the cloud. Afterwards, we run some commands to ensure the project was set up correctly. We build a new Ruby on Rails application, and learn how to commit it to our local version control (GIT). Afterwards, we check to ensure the commit went through as intended, and push the repository to GitHub where it is secure and safely backed up.

    I was doing alright till cloud9 asked for a credit card while signing up. I don't have a credit card and I don't know of anybody that does.

    Why are you developing on Cloud 9 rather than running things on your own machine? Also, awesome series. Very interesting project.

    Your intro is so loud, but your voice is low… Kind of unstable xD

    I have encountered this when starting the server:
    bash: Gemfile.lock: command not found

    Process exited with code: 127
    It also says 'run last' instead of 'run application'
