Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to automate much of the backend work that goes on with building the Community Pulse Podcast website.
During these experiments I’ve begun storing most of the assets (images, video, etc.) in cloud storage, rather than within the repository that contains the Hugo code for my site. Not only are there limits to how large a repo can be for Azure Static Web Apps to build and deploy a Hugo site, it’s just good repo hygiene to keep it mostly about the code and put the large files somewhere else.
Obviously, I’m going to look at Azure Storage to solve this problem since I work with it every day.
Check out a video I made stepping through a tutorial found on Docs.
If you follow along, in about 30 minutes you’ll have created a Resource Group, and App Service Plan, an App Service, Azure Storage, as well as deploy an existing .NET application from a public repository on GitHub straight to your own instance. And we’ll do it all from the command line.
Give it a watch and let me know what you think.
