Cloud9 IDE skill - initial steps

I have made the initial steps to get Cloud9 IDE installed localy on a Mycroft device.

The idea is to get an easy way for newbies, newcomers or people that dosnt have an IDE they like alreddy to be setup.
The Cloud9 is installed localy and has nothing to to whith Amazon AWS or any other online services. You are in total control.
Cloud9 have an integrated terminal, that gives a full shell acces to ypur device. That gives a simple way to integrate whith git to do pull and push. It also gives easy accces to run mycroft-cli-client or reading logs and use mycroft-msk etc.

    Installed it on my dev environment where msm is not properly working so I had to change file ownership manually afterwards. Installation really takes some time (5-10 minutes) on a PiCroft.
