Each month, we hope to turn the spotlight on one key resource or person that is worth knowing about, in the context of Azure Static Web Apps.

๐ŸŒŸ SPOTLIGHT ON: Awesome AZD Templates

The Azure Developer CLI (AZD) is an open-source tool that accelerates the time it takes for you to get started on Azure - with a set of developer-friendly commands that map to key stages in your workflow (code, build, deploy, monitor).

Not only that, AZD uses extensible application templates (Awesome AZD Templates) that include everything you need to get up and running on Azure for multiple scenarios. Each covering an end-to-end scenario that goes far beyond "Hello World!".

Checkout the Static Web App enabled Awesome AZD Templates we've created:
