Microsoft.Github CI Demo

Demo website application for Contoso Air.
Runs a nodejs server (Express v4.16) that stores customer booked flights in a CosmosDb database.


  • Node v8.9.4 or later
  • Azure CosmosDb

Local Environment Setup

This project uses ES6, and has been tested with nodejs v8.9.4
There is almost no front-end logic. Still, the application uses webpack to compile sass styles and bundle third parties js files. If you want to modify any front logic or style run npm run local:build.

In order to launch a local server on port 3000 (can be modified with environment variable PORT) run:

npm install
SET %COSMOS_DB_NAME%=<azure_web_site>
SET %COSMOS_DB_AUTH_KEY%=<cosmos_auth_key>
npm start

This will run locally the server and attach to the CosmosDb Endpoint using mongodb connection string.

Azure Manual Deployment

In order to create the Azure deploy there is an ARM template located at deployment folder.

ARM template parameter Usage e.g.
p_environment set an environment suffix dev
p_site_prefix common prefix for all resources created contoso-air
p_site_web_name website specific resource name web
p_comosdb_name database specific resource name db

e.g. previous parameter examples will create resources contoso-air-db-dev and contoso-air-db-dev.

Then you run the ARM template with the following commands (Azure CLI required):

cd deployment
az group deployment create --resource-group <resource_group_name> --template-file azuredeploy.json --parameters p_environment=dev

What's left is to compress the whole folder in a zip file and upload it to Azure. Manually it can be done going to https://<app_service_resource>

Note: Files under folders deployment, scss and files front.js and webpack.config.js are not required to be zipped.
