Online Code Editor

Hi

I'm searching for a selfhosted online codeeditor, or even basic texteditor, although syntax highlighting is very much wanted.

I've been looking at Cloud9 (https://c9.io/) but I've never really got it to work behind Apache mod_proxy.

Only real requirements are that it should be able to listen to port 80 or 443 and if not so, it should work flawless behind ie. Apache mod_proxy.

Buildt in security is also a bonus, but I suppose I could always failback to htpasswd if needed.

Also, no multiuser enviroment required, this is only for my own needs.

Do anyone have any recommendations?

It's koding,com but,  he's said that he's searching for something Self-Hosted.

I can't say I really know any, you could use a PHP shell and fire up VIM?  Personally I just use NotePad++ for most things, I'm not sure what I'd do with an online code editor.  If it's portability you're after you could setup your own git/svn.

After you posted about cloud9 I went to check it out, it looked easy enough to install but I was wrong.  It was a bitch and a half to build and the documentation is awful.  On the plus side once I got it built and working it's not too bad, but I can't see it being that useful to me but I guess it would be nice if you frequently work on different PC's and want a central repository and editor although that could be accomplished with an IDE on each PC and a SFTP directory.

It's simple to set it to whatever port you would like, I don't even have a webserver installed on this VPS.

If it's just for yourself, just use Cloud9 IDE free edition on the website. You don't even need to host it. It's the closest thing.

If you are looking for just an editing component, have a look at http://ace.c9.io/. It's open-source, originates from a Mozilla project, and works really well by now.

I suspect there will be an OwnCloud plugin for it, or similar.

EDIT: Or you could, of course, just throw it into your own bit of code :) And yes, it seems to originate from Cloud9.

Koding is not self hosted though - http://codiad.com/ as well as http://icecoder.net/ as you guys mentioned look like pretty awesome possibilities especially with emmet capabilities. It would be rather wild to be able to push out live website edits through a system like this for quick editing on the go - and combined with a flatfile CMS it could have some pretty neat capabilities.

That was what I was doing with codiad. :)

Here's a Chrome packaged app option, capable of editing both local and remote (with a neat little client/server setup deployed) files, has a lot of good design decisions.

EDIT: For some reason it's not mentioned on the github page for it yet, but it's also released through the Chrome Web Store, which is a much easier way to get the app itself. Obviously you still need to manage the client/server binaries yourself, but that's pretty trivial.
