First line of their site provides clear overview...

AWS Cloud9 is a cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) that lets you write, run, and debug your code with just a browser.

They use standard Javascript. Nothing special.

The editor is like any other IDE editor. Normal color coding + brace matching.

Maybe make your question more specific, for more detailed answers.

It's just an IDE, except browser based. There's nothing additional to install locally, so you can have easy access to your IDE environment as long as you have an internet connection.  There's also some good collaboration tools (similar to google docs).

Nothing unique about their javascript. The IDE does integrate nicely with AWS Lambda and some of the other AWS APIs.

What is AWS Lambda?

And with Cloud 9, what other parts of AWS are needed? I am trying to get a tops down view..
Phil PhillipsDevOps ArchitectCommented:
AWS Lambda is their serverless compute offering. Basically, you can run code without provisioning or managing servers / instances.

With Cloud 9, there's actually no other parts of AWS required... it's basically just a software suite you can use to edit code. It just happens to be cloud-based and integrates with other AWS products.
