Jotter is a free, open source, and self-hosted note-taking app similar to OneNote, Google Keep, and Evernote. We’ve covered deploying Jotter on openshift in a post before, now if you want to try Jotter before being fully committed to using it, then you can try deploying it on Cloud9 IDE and this post is to help just do that.
This post will present a step by step guide on how to install Jotter for free on Cloud9 for development purposes, please note that it’s not advisable to install a Production version of Jotter on Cloud9 as the free tier isn’t designed for that purpose. Now, and without further ado let’s dive into the tutorial.
First, you’ll need to sign-up for the free version of Cloud9.
After signing up and confirming your email, you’ll be directed to your dashboard, just click on the “create a new workspace” tab.
You’ll be directed to a new window where you should configure your workspace, select the php option, in the “Clone from Git” field just copy and paste the following link “https://github.com/yosko/jotter.git”, and then hit the “create workspace” tab.
In your workspace window, just click on the “Run Project” arrow, then click on “Preview”, the installation window will appear in a browser-like window on the side of your screen.
To prevent any problems during the installation HTTP and HTTPS conflict), just click on the pop-out icon in the browser-like window as seen below, and change the HTTPS to HTTP.
Now you’ll be directed to the login window, just use admin as username and password.
Congratulations, now you have a fully functional installation of Jotter on Cloud9, as it’s been advised above this installation should be for development purposes only and not for production.
