How To Deploy

We suggest to deploy it paired with Tiny Blazor Admin; it's a static website. However also possible do deploy it headless (just the Azure Function), if you want.

👉 Step by Step Deployment 👈 documentation is available here. This will bring you on the TinyBlazorAdmin repository where you will deploying both projects.

To have all alternative and previous version deployments, refer to the Azure Function Deployment Details page.
