WebMatrix 2 is a web development tool that enables developers to quickly build and deploy ASP.NET, PHP, HTML5, CSS3 applications. WebMatrix offers Templates for ASPNET , PHP and Node.JS to get you started with building web applications . This week we released these templates for Windows Azure websites . In this blog post I will show you how to create an azure website using one of these Templates . For the sake of this article I have chosen Bakery template which is built using ASP.NET and SQL CE .
Once you are logged into the Management portal , you will need to create a new site “from gallery” as shown below
Choose templates category and then select Bakery template
Enter the site name , say ‘mybakerysite’ and that’s it . Your bakery template is ready to be deployed .
Once the bakery site has been successfully deployed , you can click on Web Matrix button to access the site’s content .
Browse your newly created Bakery site on windows azure . Have fun trying out the various templates available on Windows Azure websites gallery 🙂
