We have started work to enable this. We discuss the approach and implementation some during our webcast last month at about minute 25 here: http://aka.ms/azurefunctionslive
We are currently reviewing support for this. We do not have any ETA at this time but will update here as this progresses.
Thank you for your suggestion.
This is a bytecode dependency. We’re hoping to address bytecode here shortly. Hopefully by end of 2018, but it’s at the back of our backlog, so we can’t promise on it. We will update here when this work gets started.
This is currently on our road map. Stay tuned for this in an upcoming release.
Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of static website hosting for Azure Storage to enable this scenario. Check out the blog post here for more details: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-storage-static-web-hosting-public-preview. The feature set includes support for default documents and custom error documents for HTTP status code 404.
For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at email@example.com.
