Native routing

If you don't need the compatibility with express library, you can use a native routing instead:

const app = await NestFactory.create(AppModule, new AzureHttpRouter());

AzureHttpRouter is exported from @nestjs/azure-func-http. Since AzureHttpRouter doesn't use express underneath, the routing itself is much faster.

Additional options

You can pass additional flags to customize the post-install schematic. For example, if your base application directory is different than src, use --rootDir flag:

$ nest add @nestjs/azure-func-http --rootDir app

Other available flags:

  • rootModuleFileName - the name of the root module file, default: app.module
  • rootModuleClassName - the name of the root module class, default: AppModule
  • skipInstall - skip installing dependencies, default: false
