Use any tool or OS to develop your site with .NET, PHP, Node.js or Python. Choose from a variety of source control options including TFS, GitHub, and BitBucket to set up continuous integration and develop as a team.

        Hello,
        Apologies for going dark on this. Making a change to an existing App Service Plan name is actually harder than it initially seems. The App Service Plan name is used as an identifier by other Azure components like Auto Scaling and since it is a part of the REST API it may be used by other scripts and external services.
        Having said that we understand that this is a common enough scenario. Currently you can work around the problem by creating a new App Service Plan, moving your apps to the new one and then deleting the old one. This is not an ideal experience so we will be working on an API \ Powershell command to automate the process.
        Thanks!
        Nir (App Service team)

      • redirect HTTP requests for /index.html to / on BLOB requests like Amazon S3 does. This will allow users to publish complete static sites.

        Basically, emulate the way Amazon does it for S3. Right now BLOB+CDN is useless for people who use static website generators like Jekyll

          Hi Francis. Thanks for reaching out. We will look into this as soon as we can.

        • Add native sitecore site support

          It would be nice if you add native sitecore site support to your azure websites. Like you have with Umbraco.
