Support Linux + Python support for Azure functions
Please support python based Azure functions that run in a Linux Docker container.
Linux Docker containers are already supported so we are half of the way there and Python is working/supported on windows preview.
Currently if you try to create a simple python based Azure function on Linux preview you get the error: HttpTriggerPy1: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
The use case here is being able to run "enterprise" python 2 environments with hard dependencies on Linux. I can verify python runs correctly and can send an example Dockerfile if needed.
The feature is currently in active development / limited preview. We invite you to try the early bits and share your feedback with us. Please follow the links below for more information -
