Azure Static Website Hosting and Static Website Generators
Static website generators such as Jekyll help us use static websites that look and feel like dynamic content websites. You can have a static blog, that contains tags, categories, articles, that are searchable and interactive. Maintaining this manually in static pages will be very time consuming and not very practical.
Static website generators, however, require installation of multiple software prerequisites and expect us to build a website every time we make a change.
We can use Azure DevOps to automate the installation of all prerequisites and site build process.
Configuring Azure DevOps
In my video contribution to Virtual Global Azure Bootcamp UK & Ireland, I explain how you can do that quickly and easily.
