AWS Cloud9 now includes visual source control integration for Git (Git panel) built in to Cloud9. Prior to this release Git could only be used on the command line of the integrated Cloud9 terminal. Today’s release gives you the option to use a visual tool, built in to the IDE, to clone, push, pull, add, and commit files to your Git repositories on Cloud9 environments.

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Cloud9’s visual Git panel will show you the status of files in your Cloud9 environment and let you selectively stage, add, and commit files to your local or remote repository from within the IDE. The Cloud9 Git panel is available in all new Cloud9 environments starting today - you’ll find it on the left navigation under the “Source Control” button or icon. Learn more about Cloud9’s visual Git panel here or by visiting the Cloud9 product page.
