Nowadays, demand for cloud-based integrated development environments (IDE) are on the rise for web developers. Mobile devices such as SmartPhones and Tablets are the candidates for such cloud-based development.
There are many cloud-based IDEs are available in the technology arena for Android development. So here we have discussed some of them:
Akshell - It is a lightweight, fast and stable server-side development environment tool. For back-end storage, it depends on the PostgreSQL database. And for those who are familiar with MySQL, it becomes easy for them to work with.
Collide - It is freely available to anybody. It runs on Java 7 JRE which relies on a host of tools like JUnit, Guava, EasyMock and JKit. It provides powerful functionality with real-time interactivity.
Python Fiddle - It is a fast, easy to learn and amazingly flexible tool in the development industry. It is a code editor and execution environment, which is much like JSFiddle and it allows to run snippets and debug scripts
Thus, there are many options to choose from, and for every coder there is definitely a program out there. So with the adoption of an open mindset and some simple security precautions, the web developer can collect the rewards of Cloud software for their Android development. Yes, it will take some effort, but it will give the best result to the coders.
Open source programs are my favorites, but they have two major drawbacks that can be corrected if you use the suggestions in this article. They can be very good, and being free is really attractive to most of us who have paid a lot for commercial software, but they can be frustrating if they are not robust or user friendly.
Another good thing about this free software is it doesn't try to be everything to everybody. Often this software solves a specific need, thus makes it more focused and easier to use than commercial software which has to try to reach a broad market.
There are some downsides to open source software though, that can be frustrating. One problem is that sometimes it stops being maintained, and eventually becomes unusable. This is similar to commercial software that eventually becomes unsupported and requires replacement.
Free software has two unique major problems that have influenced my design decisions, because often they are avoidable and can make software less robust, less usable, and harder to maintain.
