I am going to create a mobile app using Meteor.
As my current development machine is a Windows laptop, I thought I might have to get Linux/Ubuntu machine or (egads, the price!) a Mac. Apparently the Windows version of Meteor is not (yet?) fully baked as far as creating Mobile apps goes, hence the notion that I would have to get new hardware.
I’ve been using Atom as my Meteor IDE; I like it, but yearn for more “Visual Studio”-esque features.
But now I’m wondering about Cloud IDEs, such as Cloud9, Nitrous, Codebox, others?
My question is: would using such a “Cloud” IDE obviate the need for new hardware? Would it be tantamount to running a Linux/Ubuntu virtual machine, so to speak, so that I could create Meteor mobile apps without the limitations that Windows apparently has in creating Mobile apps with Meteor?
Any recommendations on which Cloud IDE you like the best?
