AzureFunBytes Episode 69 – What’s New In @AzureStaticApps with @simona_cotin and @nthonyChu

Jay Gordon

AzureFunBytes is a weekly opportunity to learn more about the fundamentals and foundations that make up Azure. It’s a chance for me to understand more about what people across the Azure organization do and how they do it. Every week we get together at 11 AM Pacific on Microsoft LearnTV and learn more about Azure.

On this episode of AzureFunBytes, Simona Cotin and Anthony Chu join the show to discuss what’s new in Static Web Apps since the last time they were on the show! Azure Static Web Apps allows you to build modern web applications that automatically publish to the web as your code changes. Since we last discussed Azure Static Web Apps with Anthony there’s been a number of enhancements to the service we’d really love to share with you.

Key features highlighted on the Azure Static Web Apps documentation on Microsoft Docs include:

  • Web hosting for static content like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and images.
  • Integrated API support provided by Azure Functions with the option to link an existing Azure Functions app using a standard account.
  • First-class GitHub and Azure DevOps integration where repository changes trigger builds and deployments.
  • Globally distributed static content, putting content closer to your users.
  • Free SSL certificates, which are automatically renewed.
  • Custom domains to provide branded customizations to your app.
  • Seamless security model with a reverse-proxy when calling APIs, which requires no CORS configuration.
  • Authentication provider integrations with Azure Active Directory, GitHub, and Twitter.
  • Customizable authorization role definition and assignments.
  • Back-end routing rules enabling full control over the content and routes you serve.
  • Generated staging versions powered by pull requests enabling preview versions of your site before publishing.
