Provide a name for your site, then I’ll take few seconds to create an instance for it.
In a few seconds your site will have a git repository provisioned.
Open the folder with your local git repository in a command line/PowerShell window and type:
git remote add azure https://firstname.lastname@example.org/helloworld-test.git
Here the “azure” is the name of your remote repository and the link is the address of your repository hosted in Azure.
git push azure master
In a few seconds your files will be published to Azure and your site will be available online.
As we see, configuration process is very straightforward and simple. After setting it up it takes** one command to publish** last version of your site to Azure and in a few seconds it will be available online.
PS: Deploying a website/application using Git is far from being a ground breaking feature as many companies are allowing similar scenarios. Important is who does it – Microsoft. The revamped Azure with all his new features, ongoing involvements in Open Source, the new wave of Developer Tools shows clearly that Microsoft isn’t only serving to “The Enterprise” but also listening carefully to latest tech & software development trends. And even his moves aren’t really innovative, keeping up with new stuff and improving constantly the old products it’s a very good strategy.
