Meteor Azure 2.0 (supports local bundling, brand new docs)

We’ve just released version 2 of Meteor Azure, which has been rewritten as an npm CLI to eliminate UX pain-points and address many of the issues people faced with server-side bundling.

Some of the new features include:

  • Support for Free/Shared plans
  • Support for Yarn projects
  • No more slow initial builds! (all compilation is done on your machine)
  • Load Meteor settings/environment variables from a settings file
  • Automatically configure Azure settings (including smart detection of appropriate Node/NPM versions)
  • Overall significantly faster deploy speeds
  • Built-in debug mode, which retrieves diagnostics for bug reports
  • Track deployment progress in real-time, without opening the Kudu interface)

We also have a brand new documentation site @ which includes a step-by-step tutorial for getting started and covers configuration topics like enabling multi-core on larger instances or targeting a staging slot for zero-downtime swap.

Please report any issues or questions you may have here or in the GitHub issue tracker.


This looks very solid. Great work.

Thanks! We appreciate the feedback.

You don’t support deployment to linux machines, right?

Correct - Linux instances are a completely different stack with Docker-based deployments (so you can use any generic Meteor solutions). Windows App Service is built on IISNode which has some unique benefits in a Meteor context e.g multi-core session affinity.
