In this post I would like to cover and share a quick and interesting deployment process, to get your github project hosted by any Azure user.
The idea is simple. Application owners can add a "Deploy to Azure" button (or any other image or link) to their GitHub repository by inserting it to their README.md file using standard markdown or html.
<a href="https://azuredeploy.net/?repository=https://github.com/user/repo" target="_blank">
Here is a github example which is using this button:
But it's not the button which makes this interesting.
The real power is that you could install any github project directly onto your Azure within a few minutes of your time!
How it works
When a user clicks on the button, a “referrer” header is sent to azuredeploy.net which contains the location of the Git repository to deploy from.
Now, don't wait any longer and get your github projects ready for Azure deployments!
