How to build and launch an ASP.NET Core app from Google Cloud Shell — without ever leaving the browser

Google Cloud Shell, my favorite development tool for Google Cloud Platform, just got more awesome with two new features.

First, we recently integrated Eclipse Orion, an online code editor, with Cloud Shell. If you’re not a Vim or Emacs fan, Orion is a welcome addition to Cloud Shell. It enables you to edit code right inside the browser with basic syntax highlighting and minimal effort.

Second, we added .NET Core command line interface tools to Cloud Shell. This is a new cross-platform toolchain for developing .NET Core applications and it can be used to create, run and publish .NET Core apps from the command line.
