Software to program.

I am trying to find a software to use to program in. I've read about c9. What will i need to be able to program with several languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript ect. I will be doing so on my chromebook until i can afford a better computer.

At a bare minimum, you will need a good text editor such as "Text" or "Caret" on Chromebook to code in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript. Then, you can use "Chrome" browser itself to view the web pages you develop. Alternatively, you can use online IDE like "Cloud9" or "Koding". If you want to run a light-weight server such as "node.js", you can do so (just google for installation steps) and you will be set for full stack JavaScript programming.

c9 is online virtual machine container for programming. You don't need to install anything.
