Running Django on Azure Web Apps for Containers with Docker
In this post, App Dev Manager Drew Lewis walks us through how to host a simple Python/Django application in Azure App Services.
In this post I will walk you through a very simple approach to developing and hosting a simple Python/Django application in Azure App Service. For this demo we will target Azure Web Apps for Containers which gives us the flexibility to customize our application dependencies by wrapping those needed libraries in a Docker container. Currently, App Service on Linux doesn’t support Python, but we will be able to containerize our web app and include any dependencies as needed. If you find your application’s runtimes aren’t supported by App Service by default, this is the approach you will take to run your application in Azure.
