Install and Configure Tools

In the Cloud9 workspace, run the following commands:

Install Python, Node14 and Java 11

nvm install 14
sudo yum -y install jq python3 java-11-amazon-corretto.x86_64
sudo pip3 install boto3
sudo pip install docker-compose
Configure Java 11 - select Java 11 option after running below command
sudo alternatives --config java

Configure bash

echo "export AWS_DEFAULT_REGION=$(curl -s | jq -r .region)" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "export AWS_REGION=\$AWS_DEFAULT_REGION" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "export AWS_ACCOUNT_ID=$(aws sts get-caller-identity --query Account --output text)" >> ~/.bashrc
echo "export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-amazon-corretto.x86_64/" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

Increase the disk size on the Cloud9 instance

export instance_id=$(curl -s
python -c "import boto3
import os
from botocore.exceptions import ClientError 
ec2 = boto3.client('ec2')
volume_info = ec2.describe_volumes(
            'Name': 'attachment.instance-id',
            'Values': [
volume_id = volume_info['Volumes'][0]['VolumeId']
    resize = ec2.modify_volume(    
except ClientError as e:
    if e.response['Error']['Code'] == 'InvalidParameterValue':
        print('ERROR MESSAGE: {}'.format(e))"
sudo reboot

  • Note: The above command is adding more disk space to the root volume of the EC2 instance that Cloud9 runs on. Once the command completes, we reboot the instance which could take a minute or two for the IDE to come back online.
