Announcing the Azure Cloud Shell editor in collaboration with Visual Studio Code

Community Manager

Last year at the //Build conference we launched the Azure Cloud Shell in the Azure portal, providing our users with a cloud-native command-line environment from any device, anywhere in the world. Over the last year, we've seen incredible adoption, with thousands of users logging in every day.


We've added some incredible integrations that make Cloud Shell even more powerful. We added automatic authorization for pre-installed open source tools like Terraform, Ansible, and InSpec. We've also partnered with other Microsoft teams to enable the Try It experiences for Azure and .NET documentation. Additionally, we worked with the Visual Studio Code team to embed Cloud Shell inside of Visual Studio Code and the Azure mobile app team to integrate Cloud Shell into the Azure mobile app for easy access from mobile devices everywhere.


To bring even more flexibility to how you edit files, today I'm excited to announce the launch of a graphical editor embedded directly in Azure Cloud Shell. Through collaboration with the Visual Studio Code team and their open-source Monaco project, the same web-standards based editor that powers Visual Studio Code is now integrated directly into Cloud Shell.
