Access your AWS Cloud9 environment by clicking the link right from AWSCloud9URL in the Outputs section of your CloudFormation stack. Use a supported browser to work with Cloud9.
You should see a website that looks similar to:
The color theme of your Cloud9 environment might look different. The examples in this guide are based on the Jett Dark theme. If you like this theme you can switch to it under:
View -> Themes -> UI Themes -> Jett Dark
But feel free to use whatever theme you like.
Several files and folders have been copied to your AWS Cloud9 environment into the home folder of the ec2-user. To show them in the left pane of AWS Cloud9 choose the gear icon and then choose
Show Home in Favorites.
The Cloud9 IDE offers a builtin terminal that is used to type commands on the EC2 instance. A terminal can be opened in the following way:

To prepare the AWS Cloud9 instance a bootstrapping process will run shortly after the instance has been created. The process performs several settings and installs software packages.
If you access AWS Cloud9 shortly after it was created bootstrapping might still be in process.
THE INSTANCE IS CURRENTLY BEING BOOTSTRAPED Please wait until bootstrapping has been finished Bootstrapping is ongoing as long as "/tmp/BOOTSTRAPPING_IN_PROGRESS" exists Will REBOOT after bootstrapping is done To follow bootstrapping use: "tail -f /tmp/c9-user-data.log"
=== REBOOTING instance with at === /tmp/tmp.NavUZLQ8a0 BOOTSTRAP_START: 2021-02-11 15:20:14 BOOTSTRAP_END: 2021-02-11 15:23:04 REBOOTING... WAIT UNTIL REBOOT HAS BEEN COMPLETED
The following instructions are for later use.
Files could either be uploaded directly with the Cloud9 IDE or via an S3 bucket.
The CloudFormation stack has created a S3 Bucket for you. You can find the bucket name in the outputs section of the CloudFormation stack. A shell variable named “$S3_BUCKET” also holds the name of the bucket.
Use the S3 bucket to copy files to/from your EC2 instance. The AWS S3 console can be used to up/download files to/from the S3 bucket.
In a terminal in the Cloud9 IDE you would use the awscli to copy files to/from the bucket.
# copy files from the bucket aws s3 cp s3://$S3_BUCKET/my_object . # copy files to the bucket aws s3 cp my_file s3://$S3_BUCKET/my_file
