I’m sure you’ve often found yourself wanting to try a great new framework/library/SDK you just found – it’s going to make your life so much easier! However, this usually means going through an arduous process of setting up a new project, configuring it, and then working your way through a tutorial to just get a basic demo app running; you may simply give up even before you start!
Our friends at StrongLoop recognize this, and so they set out to make it as easy as possible for you to try their mobile backend (LoopBack) and operational dashboard (StrongOps) for Node apps. They partnered with Cloud9 IDE to get the full StrongLoop suite up and running in a Cloud9 workspace with just one click!
StrongLoop wrote a blog post on how to setup a StrongLoop workspace, and in this post we’ll highlight the key points, taking the StrongLoop solution as a case study.
