Linux Static Site on Nginx
One of the most common web techniques today is static generated web sites. Ideally, there would be an option along with Node, Php etc for Static HTML. This would allow configuration for just running Nginx web servers to host static sites.
Thanks for your suggestion, we will evaluate the suggestion and post an update when we have news to share.

This is possible with the Windows App Service, since the default document settings of IIS makes it look for index.html in site\wwwroot. But It doesn't seem to be as easy on Linux based App Service. It should be very easy to support, though. Just a setting for the default document mapped to an Nginx config.
