I went to set up Azure functions for a new client and had to delete and re-create my application so I could downgrade to runtime 1.0 in order to use a powershell function. Even AWS has realized the proliferation of Powershell and now allows it to be used in Lambda functions. I have probably thousands of administrative scripts in my archives that could easily be ported to Azure functions. I'd move to AWS before I'd invest the time to re-write them all.14 votes
We’re now working on PowerShell 6 support in Functions 2.0! Please tune into the repo here – https://github.com/Azure/azure-functions-powershell-worker for more details.
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.14 votes
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 -
Server-less Functions are great for quick and dirty development and testing. Please make this available (for testing) to DreamSpark Imagine Student license.6 votes
