Divio Cloud is not just a cloud-based production environment for your sites - it's a also a local one, that runs on your own computer, to make your development work faster and easier.
In other words, Divio Cloud allows you to replicate your projects locally, so that you can work on them using the tools you're most comfortable with, and in the ways you prefer.
Because the local development environment Divio Cloud creates is built in the same way as the deployment environment used to host your project, you can be confident that what works locally will also work in the cloud.
Divio Cloud provides a simple command-line application to manage your local environments - to replicate them, keep them in sync, and push changes back to the cloud.
See our local development environment documentation for more information.
