Static website hosting in Azure blob storage
This would require supporting default file to render and somekind of redirect from root to a particular container.
Static websites is planned for the coming year! This feature will include more detailed error messages as well as support for a default Storage Blob. As soon as we have updates to share on Static Websites we will do so. For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's actually comical how bad Azure is. Thanks for the laugh guys.

Being the 2nd largest ask and 5 months since the last update, any updates to help people plan their work better?
Is there a timeline when this is going to be available?
Any updates on when this will be implemented? It's been almost 6 months.

I was just about to move my web site to blob, then I ran into this. I guess I'll have to find a different solution.

Can't believe it has taken this long. I moved everything to AWS last year and this was a big reason why. CloudFront + S3 and Free SSL make for a great Progressive Web App platform. Glad to see you are finally making some progress. PLEASE do not make it difficult to setup. AWS is super simple.

Can also use Azure functions as a wrapper

This is now beyond a joke. I have just spent an entire week waiting on the 4 hour publish times to test my CDN rewrite rules to get a simple angular2 SPA to work in a blob.
I have followed Hao's helpful post here: https://blog.lifeishao.com/2017/05/24/serving-your-static-sites-with-azure-blob-and-cdn but it does not work for me. All i want is https://myurl.azureedge.net/ is to resolve to https://myurl.azureedge.net/index.html.
It's sad that all the har dwork being done by the functions team is negated by a simple feature missing.
Probably it is just nothing one can earn enough cash with. It's the absurdest missing feature I have ever occured. And it has not been fixed for years and years....

CDN is great, but this is a necessary addition.

I am freaking puzzled, how is it possible that the Azure storage team is not aware of the fact that this is possible???
Itay Shakury commented
Also interested in the feature. Please send update on progress as soon as possible.
Is there a recommended work-around to at least appease us until the feature is implemented?
Don't make me use S3 just for this. commented
Please. Surely it can't be that hard.
Hao Luo commented
There is a workaround using CDN. See Step 5 and 6 on https://blog.lifeishao.com/2017/05/24/serving-your-static-sites-with-azure-blob-and-cdn
You can realize this with Azure Functions Proxies that route to the blob storage.

We really need this feature.
