Azure function v2 engine does not support calls to System.Drawing.Bitmap class. I understand that this limitation has been documented under https://github.com/projectkudu/kudu/wiki/Azure-Web-App-sandbox
I find System.Drawing.Bitmap very useful when it comes to reading image files. Our current product (on .NET Framework) relies on System.Drawing for image processing and works very well. However we are unable to port to Azure because of the sandbox restrictions.
I request the team to consider this support in future versions of the runtime.3 votes
My suspicion is that we will not do this. As you mentioned, the sandbox explicitly blocks calls like this. But, we will check to see.
Azure Functions Tools fail to start when there is a non american character on the user name (%userprofile% directory)
The network administrator just setup Active Directory integration and my user profile directory was created with non american characters. My name has an accent (^ ê).
My azure function project stopped working and I found out that the only problem was having an accent in the user profile directory.1 vote
Thanks for reporting, we are looking into this
Now obviously Google has a bit of an advantage here what with Chrome being their own tech but there are so many blogs out there with people talking about complicated Docker solutions just to run headless Chrome in the cloud.
It would be great if we could get a solution where we could run Puppeteer in much the same way, or allow web apps to run Chrome without having to be inside Docker and we could manage a pool of Chromes without having to manage Docker as well.54 votes
Thank you for the feedback. We have moved this item to the Azure Functions section for the PG to take a look.
