We’re excited to announce a new documentation feature that lets you run code samples in Cloud Shell, without leaving the page. Sign in to your Google account, open Cloud Shell’s online terminal in the documentation, and run code as you’re reading about it:
This new feature makes it easier to explore Google Cloud by putting Cloud Shell at your fingertips. Now you don’t need to switch between the documentation and a terminal window to run the commands in a tutorial. The documentation has everything you need to try new products and services.
Cloud Shell even has common command-line tools and programming languages already installed, so you don’t need to track down libraries or deal with dependencies. Your development environment is always ready to use and up to date—just activate Cloud Shell and get started.
Cloud Shell is available throughout our documentation set on Chrome desktop browsers (version 74 or higher). To use Cloud Shell in the documentation, sign in and click the Activate Cloud Shell button at the top of the page.
