Azure App Service Running Docker Containers on Linux | Python

View Code Deploy

Starting point for building a web application hosted in Azure App Service from Docker images.

The example shows two scenarios:

  • Deploying an existing image from Docker Hub
  • Deploying a new custom registry in Azure Container Registry, building a custom Docker image, and running the image from the custom registry

Running the App

  1. Create a new stack:

    $ pulumi stack init dev
  2. Login to Azure CLI (you will be prompted to do this during deployment if you forget this step):

    $ az login
  3. Create a Python virtualenv, activate it, and install dependencies:

    This installs the dependent packages needed for our Pulumi program.

    $ python3 -m venv venv
    $ source venv/bin/activate
    $ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  4. Specify the Azure location to use:

    $ pulumi config set azure-native:location WestUS
  5. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy changes:

    $ pulumi up
    Previewing changes:
    Performing changes:
        + 8 created
    Duration: 56s
  6. Check the deployed endpoints:

    $ pulumi stack output helloEndpoint
    $ curl "$(pulumi stack output helloEndpoint)"
    Hello, world!
    $ pulumi stack output getStartedEndpoint
    $ curl "$(pulumi stack output getStartedEndpoint)"
    <h1>Your custom docker image is running in Azure App Service!</h1>
