All my DNN sites now are hosted on Azure. I have a single portal site (PokerDIY) which I want to to RAD on. It is very slow to publish new module builds to Azure with the current DNN Installer.
I am writing an Angluar App with an EntityFramework backend (using DNN WebAPi services). One of the most attractive features of an ASP.NET MVC project is the ease of deployment - e.g. when I check in I can push a checked-in CI build to Azure or publish directly to Azure.
Every time I change my module (which has the backend services and frontend) I have to go to my website, select the package and go through DNN's clunky installer. I appreciate that this model works well for 3rd party software, but I just want to be able to push new module builds to Azure with a click in VS.
The publish feature in VS pushes ALL the .dlls that the project requires- I need something that will push just the .dlls and front-end files for my module. (I can either apply the SQL changes manually or using the DNN installer when these change)
Has anyone cracked the problem of quick deployment of modules to a DNN Azure site?
