Bicep: Static Web Apps and Linked Backends
Azure Static Web Apps can be linked to Azure Functions, Azure Container Apps etc to provide the linked backend for a site. This post will demonstrate how to do this with Bicep.
Azure Container Apps: dapr pubsub
This post shows how to build and deploy two Azure Container Apps using Bicep and GitHub Actions. These apps will communicate using dapr's publish & subscribe (pubsub) building block.
Migrating from GitHub Pages to Azure Static Web Apps
You can use Bicep and GitHub Actions to build and deploy to a static website on Azure Static Web Apps. This post demonstrates how.
Azure Container Apps: dapr, devcontainer, debug and deploy
This post shows how to build and deploy two Azure Container Apps using Bicep and GitHub Actions. These apps will communicate using dapr, be built in VS Code using a devcontainer. It will be possible to debug in VS Code and run with
This follows on from the previous post which built and deployed a simple web application to Azure Container Apps using Bicep and GitHub Actions using the GitHub container registry.
Azure Container Apps: build and deploy with Bicep and GitHub Actions
This post shows how to build and deploy a simple web application to Azure Container Apps using Bicep and GitHub Actions. This includes the configuration and deployment of secrets.
This post follows on from the previous post which deployed infrastructure and a "hello world" container, this time introducing the building of an image and storing it in the GitHub container registry so it can be deployed.
If you'd like to learn more about using dapr with Azure Container Apps then you might want to read this post.
Azure Container Apps, Bicep and GitHub Actions
Azure Container Apps are an exciting way to deploy containers to Azure. This post shows how to deploy the infrastructure for an Azure Container App to Azure using Bicep and GitHub Actions. The Azure Container App documentation features quickstarts for deploying your first container app using both the Azure Portal and the Azure CLI. These are great, but there's a gap if you prefer to deploy using Bicep and you'd like to get your CI/CD setup right from the beginning. This post aims to fill that gap.
If you're interested in building your own containers as well, it's worth looking at this follow up post.
Azure standard availability tests with Bicep
Azure standard tests are a tremendous way to monitor the uptime of your services in Azure. Sometimes also called availability tests, web tests and ping tests, this post goes through how to deploy one using Bicep. It also looks at some of the gotchas that you may encounter as you're setting it up.
Permissioning Azure Pipelines with Bicep and Azure RBAC Role Assignments
How can we deploy resources to Azure, and then run an integration test through them in the context of an Azure Pipeline? This post will show how to do this by permissioning our Azure Pipeline to access these resources using Azure RBAC role assignments. It will also demonstrate a dotnet test that runs in the context of the pipeline and makes use of those role assignments.
Bicep: syntax highlighting with PrismJS (and Docusaurus)
Bicep is an amazing language, it's also very new. If you want to write attractive code snippets about Bicep, you can by using PrismJS (and Docusaurus). This post shows you how.
Publish Azure Static Web Apps with Bicep and Azure DevOps
This post demonstrates how to deploy Azure Static Web Apps using Bicep and Azure DevOps. It includes a few workarounds for the "Provider is invalid. Cannot change the Provider. Please detach your static site first if you wish to use to another deployment provider." issue.
Output connection strings and keys from Azure Bicep
If we're provisioning resources in Azure with Bicep, we may have a need to acquire the connection strings and keys of our newly deployed infrastructure. For example, the connection strings of an event hub or the access keys of a storage account. Perhaps we'd like to use them to run an end-to-end test, perhaps we'd like to store these secrets somewhere for later consumption. This post shows how to do that using Bicep and the
listKeys helper. Optionally it shows how we could consume this in Azure Pipelines.
Azure Functions and .NET 5: Query params, Dependency Injection, Bicep & Build
The upgrade of Azure Functions from .NET Core 3.1 to .NET 5 is significant. There's an excellent guide for the general steps required to perform the upgrade. However there's a number of (unrelated) items which are not covered by that post:
Hello World Bicep
Bicep makes Azure Resource Management a great deal simpler than ARM templates. The selling point here is grokkability. This post takes a look at the "Hello World" example recently added to the Bicep repo to appreciate quite what a difference it makes.
Bicep meet Azure Pipelines 2
Last time I wrote about how to use the Azure CLI to run Bicep within the context of an Azure Pipeline. The solution was relatively straightforward, and involved using
az deployment group create in a task. There's an easier way.
Bicep meet Azure Pipelines
Bicep is a terser and more readable alternative language to ARM templates. Running ARM templates in Azure Pipelines is straightforward. However, there isn't yet a first class experience for running Bicep in Azure Pipelines. This post demonstrates an approach that can be used until a Bicep task is available.
