Minimal ASP.NET Core Dependencies for Google Cloud

After a long hiatus, I'm slowly starting back on blogging and some personal projects. To get me back in the swing of things, here's a short post on running ASP.NET core on Google Cloud, since this seems poorly documented online. The default project created by the Google Cloud tools includes Microsoft.AspNetCore.All which is a huge dependency. If you want something more minimal: uninstall-package Microsoft.AspNetCore.All install-package Microsoft.AspNetCore install-package Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc.Core install-package Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc This creates a runnable project using the standard Google Cloud Web API project template, although it still isn't ideal as it includes the Razor pages dependencies.
