  • If you are using an expressjs application on Azure App Service and want to use Easy Tables on Azure manage portal. There are several more configurations you can try to set in advance.

    1.  Install Azure Mobile Apps - Node SDK express middleware in your application. 
    2.  add a folder named `tables` in the root directory of application.
    3.  Config Data Connections In your App Service mange portal, click Settings => Data Connections => Add to create a connection string.
    4.  You can leverage azure mobile apps node sdk to use these easy tables scripts. 

    You can refer to https://github.com/Azure/azure-mobile-apps-node/tree/master/samples/todo for the basic expressjs+mobile apps sample with easy tables.

  • Go to your site => All Settings => Quickstarts - follow the instructions there and deploy the Node.js quickstart.

  • Which node.js template? The blank app just tells me to download visual studio and the sdk. I already have those installed.

  • Log on to Azure Portal

    CLick on your site

    CLick on All Setttings

    Click on Quickstarts

    Follow the instructions.

    The quickstart is the only template that has support for Easy Tables right now.

  • Just deployed azure node express 4 app from visual studio and that didn't work either. Still no easy tables. Getting ready to look at Firebase.

  • Doesn't work. All that is under "Quickstart" is instructions to download and install Visual studio and tools (WHICH I HAVE). No solution works. Go try it yourself. I have never had this problem in the past. Been using Azure for years.

  • That's the .NET Quickstart.  As I mentioned in the first place, you need to deploy the Node.js Quickstart.  This is currently the only one that allows you to use Easy Tables.
