Sync code from blob storage
I find the current deployment model way too difficult to work with. Please consider supporting auto-sync from blob storage, similar to what aws lambda offers.
Just pinging that this is still the proper state for this feature request.
Note that you can use the Azure Functions CLI to publish from the command line as well. https://www.npmjs.com/package/azure-functions-cli

The service does support syncing from OneDrive, Dropbox, VSTS, GitHub, Bitbucket out of the box though.
