How to deploy on Azure Portal?

If you are using Azure DevOps and let the build pipeline do its work you and want to store artifacts. Files which are prefixed with a . must be moved to the artifact folder explicitly. Then you can create an Artifact Archive and download it afterwards in your Release Deployment.

Running the webserver

For Azure Portal you will need a web.config file. If not supplied, it will create one itself. This one won't work for Nuxt though. Add a web.config file to your repository. For the latest version of Nuxt the server file is located at server/index.js. In the web.config you don't specify the exact path server/index.js but just server. See the example web.config below. If you don't do this the logs will tell you that Vue cannot find any routes.

      You can control how Node is hosted within IIS using the following options:
        * watchedFiles: semi-colon separated list of files that will be watched for changes to restart the server
        * node_env: will be propagated to node as NODE_ENV environment variable
        * debuggingEnabled - controls whether the built-in debugger is enabled

      See https://github.com/tjanczuk/iisnode/blob/master/src/samples/configuration/web.config for a full list of options
