I just wrote an article for HTML5Rocks on a new DevTools extension that allows you to use your terminal directly from inside Chrome. This is a huge milestone for in-browser productivity tooling and compliments our recent Workspaces feature, which makes it possible for the DevTools to effectively be your editor.
Some of the things I’ve enjoyed using the extension for include:
- my git workflow (clone, add, diff, commit, push etc.)
- managing dependencies with npm and bower
- curl, grep, vim, nano, ssh
- starting new projects with yeoman, building with grunt
For more info on features we’ve added to Workspaces in the last month, check out Deanna’s DevTools write-up from November.
