  6. Changing Directories and Starting with a Clean Slate in Cloud9

  • We'll learn a few linux commands, which are useful for controlling our Cloud9 virtual computer without using a mouse.
  • We'll delete the default Rails app and create an empty workspace folder.

###Terminal

cd
rm -r workspace
ls
mkdir workspace
cd workspace
clear

###Terminal

cd
rm -rf workspace
mkdir workspace
cd workspace
ls
