‘Gotcha’ for running Cloud9 IDE on Cygwin

Cloud9 IDE is a slick web-based ide optimized for NodeJS, built on — you guessed it — NodeJS. If you’re developing Node on Windows, you’re probably using Cygwin (see previous post for instructions.) Trying to run Cloud9 on my setup threw an error.

With a a little trial and error, I discovered I needed to install ‘libxml2-dev.’ Re-rerun setup.exe to add the needed lib.
