I forked the tinyg workspace into GitHub then opened my fork in Cloud 9. When I ran runme.js, I got a message saying that --debug was deprecated, then the process exited. After a lot of false starts, I got it working by clicking on the green icon that looks sort of like an insect, thus turning of debugging, and re-running the runme.js script.
Apparently the default Runner: Node.js script is out of date. I wonder where that script lives?
I right-click to Run and then I click on the URL where it says “Your code is running at https://workspace-tinyg-chilipeppr.c9users.io.” in the bottom console window to open the webpage that runme.js dishes up. missing/deleted image from Google+
Yep, that fixed it. As an old-school software developer dating back to days when C was the new kid on the block, I am continually amazed by the number of disparate tools it takes to do modern development.
