Working with Github clones and local repos: Cloud9 IDE
I recently tried using the Cloud9 online IDE. It starts by creating a clone of your Github repo. My regular local use of git is fairly simple (init, status, commit, push to Github, branch, edit, pull, merge…), but because I don’t usually clone, I haven’t got my autopilot head around how to:
- push changes made in my C9 clone back to the original repo in Github.
this outline guide suggests using the same username for github and C9, but a no-clutter step-by-step is what I’m looking for…

If you auth with your Github account in cloud9 and clone a Github project, then if you git push it will push to the original repo in Github
[JJ] If you cloned the project in Cloud9 before (via the command line, so not via the UI on the dashboard), you can do
git remote add upstream email@example.com:your/repo.git. Now you have another remote that you can either pull from (
git pull upstream master or push to
git push upstream master).
Commit as usual using the C9 CLI, then simply run
git push from the C9 CLI, as you would normally when developing on your machine.
