Azure Developer CLI has been released and I used it.

Introduction.

Azure Developer CLI is a command line tool used by Clyde app developers.

As of 2022/07/13, it is a public preview and may be subject to specification changes. Please be aware of this.

azd is a command that allows you to work consistently between templates, DevOps workflows, and IDEs.

This is the recommended workflow for the Azure Developer CLI.

  • Template Selection
  • Get and deploy workflow
  • Change code, commit, and automatically deploy to running apps

I have been manually setting up github and pipelines and such, but is this something that can be automated? I would like to try it out.

Try it out

The first task is to deploy the AzureDeveloper CLI template.

The template contains the app code, tools, and infrastructure code.

A CI/CD pipeline can also be configured.

Supported languages include Node.js, Python, and C#. If you check each template, you will see that several combinations are available. You can also customize these yourself.

Azure static web apps are also supported, and AKS will be supported in the future.

Java will also be supported as a language in the future.

Installation of Azure Developer CLI

We would like to install using WSL.
Pre-install the following software

  • git

It doesn’t matter because git is originally installed in wsl.

  • Azure Developer CLI(azd)
curl -fsSL https://aka.ms/install-azd.sh | sudo bash

In the meantime, run it with sudo.

azd-linux-amd64
install-azd: Successfully installed to /usr/local/bin/azd

Check the version.

azd version
azd version 0.1.0-beta.1 (commit 62c419b34f824a8c464e55f320f3dc8c2c153702)
  • NPM+Node.js (v 16.13.1 LTS) At least the latest version should be fine.

Template Execution

Create an appropriate folder and run azd up.

Login in advance with az login.

azd up --template todo-nodejs-mongo

It is executed interactively.

A dashboard is also created. This is very convenient.

summary

A new tool called Azure Developer CLI is now available. It is a useful tool for developers, and I think it will be used in a variety of ways.

I will play with it some more.
