Consistent Development Environments in the Cloud -
With Nitrous, developers can utilize pre-built development environment templates from the Nitrous standard library, or use their companies' own private templates . This makes it incredibly easy to keep standard templates for a particular client's project, or to collaborate and share among teams.

Nitrogen
Nitrous.io announced Nitrogen, a powerful package built on top of GitHub's Atom Editor. Nitrogen provides an interface within Atom to interact with your Nitrous development environments running in the cloud.

This includes:

Your Favorite Packages
Nitrogen lets you use packages like autocomplete+, color picker and Emmet.

Context Switch
Switch between project containers directly in Atom using the integrated dropdown menu.

Integrated Console
We've embedded a fully functioning linux shell inside of Atom. Open multiple shells and files within the same layout.

Atom Themes
And of course since it's Atom, you can personlize your Nitrous experience with the theme of your choice.

Easy to setup
Just install the nitrogen package from the packages section under settings.
