Some recent Azure Fridays 🔗

Introducing the Azure Developer CLI (azd) 🔗

  • Create things using templates.
  • Seems to be aimed at people who don't know what they're doing and don't want to think too much about it.
  • But also good for giving examples of best practices.
  • Templates include everything - vscode, Azure DevOps pipelines, GitHub Actions, dashboard, Playwright, etc.

New API back-end options in Azure Static Web Apps 🔗

  • Static web apps always had Functions backends, but now they've added more
  • secure the backend, handle CORS, routing, backend can extract headers from request
  • can link static web app to API in the portal
    • then it'll handle the context, ie route the relative paths
    • auth providers/endpoints are built-in
    • also API Management - allows to link to other APIs - can add auth, etc
