When it comes to cloud-based PHP development, the sticking point is the debugger | ZDNet

While there are cloud-based IDEs, doing PHP development in a cloud IDE is still far from turnkey.

As this article points out, developing and especially debugging code with a cloud-based IDE still is not optimal.

I was tempted to try out a Pixelbook for programming, but I will stick with my MacBook Pro in which I can run Windows (or even Linux) in a virtual machine.

CodeAnywhere and other cloud-based IDEs are more suited for doing quick edits or doing an SSH session into your site, but not full development.

Eventually we’ll get to that point, but not at this time.

For anyone looking to code while on the go, Codeanywhere is one of the best cloud-based IDEs around.

You can try it for free, to see if it meets your needs.  They offer a free trial of the “Freelancer” plan which is $7/month when paid annually or $10/month if you pay month-to-month.

So, what’s so great about Codeanywhere?  Well, besides being able to create “containers” for Java, C/C++, HTML, Angular, Python, etc. it allows you to connect your Github, Google Drive, Dropbox and even your own site if you have one.

You can use it in any web browser, and they have apps for Android and a brand new app for iOS.

I’ve used it often to log into my own site and update files, run an SSH Terminal session and more.

You can get pricing info and compare plans here.  To see more about the features than I can describe in this article, check out this link.

This isn’t a paid endorsement, just a review from a very happy user.

If you want to be able to log into your site from anywhere, check some code you’ve stored on Git or any other coding task, give Codeanywhere a try.  I think you’ll be pleased with how it can help you.
