depoly to blob storage as part of visual studio publish
It would be great in visual studio to mark a css, js or image (so static file) as needing deployment to blob storage as part of the publishing process. This would make it much easier to create website that utilize table storage and CDN for these files speeding up sites and making it easier to make changes to this static content
I’ve discussed an idea like this with a few of the web tooling Program Managers recently, and we all agree that the feature is indeed a legitimate one we should consider. The discussions are really early.
We do have support for uploading files to blob storage accounts directly from within VS. We also have web publishing capabilities. Add to that the support we have in Razor for being able to load things like jQuery from disk when the site’s running in debug mode to later loading from a CDN, and it seems like something we could develop.
We’re looking into the options now. I’ll keep this thread updated in the future.
