The GitHub Deploy to Azure Button
This is a really quick post but one I thought was worthy of getting down somewhere.
I’m starting to use GitHub more and more as a source for content and as I find myself wanting to produce the odd piece of content as well, I figured GitHub is where everyone else is sticking their Azure Resource Manager code so I should do the same.
For anyone that has looked on the official Azure team GitHub Repositories, you will have seen the blue Deploy to Azure button which is really nice as it directly takes you from GitHub over to Azure and links back to the GitHub Repository to start deploying the Resource Manager template without you having to download it and deploy it manually first.
The Azure team have a blog post over at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/blog/deploy-to-azure-button-for-azure-websites-2/ which explains how you can use the Deploy to Azure button in your own repositories or even have it on your own website with a link back to a repository. It’s a nice touch, dead simple to implement by adding a line to the readme.md file and gives you that factory feel.
