Deploying Node Apps Using Visual Studio Code



VS Code has some nifty extensions to make deploying Node apps to Azure a real snap. In this video, we take a look at how

to deploy with FTP, local Git, GitHub, Docker and even setup a full build pipeline using a build server.

  1. Hi Burke! Love the video – very helpful 🙂 Unfortunately my app didn't work, it deployed successful but when I go to the URL I get a 503 ERROR. I'm using the B1 plan, so more than enough CPU resources… any ideas on how I can troubleshoot (I'm still quite new to Azure…) Appreciate any guidance, i'm stumped!

  2. What about hosting Node APIs on pure IIS server (no Azure) – I've seen the IISNode, however its a 5 year old stuff and it does look more like a hack than a solution. What are your thoughts? Can there be an easy way to (self?) host Node APIs on IIS server so as I can instead of localhost:3000/myapiendpoint can use like localhost/hotdealsserver/myapiendpoint?

  3. Really great tutorial, I've watched it a few times now. At one point you show how to add environmental variables in vscode to your Azure webapp (18:39). I'm wondering how this works if you are using containers like in the second half of your tutorial. How can those variables get passed to your container?

  4. Great tutorial, really liked the "deploy node using github part". Thank you 🙂 I found it a bit fast paced in the end though. I would love to see a step by step tutorial (similar to the node part) showing creating a node backend -> using docker -> pushing changes to github -> setting up commands in vs team services -> seeing the result on the web.

  5. I sincerely hope you are an MS MVP… Totally awesome, I have been searching for days trying to get my head around deployment for Node with Azure. You are the man, my questions are answered!!! Thanks a million! You have a gift to cut out the BS and get right to the matter that counts. I love VSCode, call me crazy but I have no desire for VS any longer. Thanks again!
