Deploy as Azure Cloud Service

Nov 25, 2013 at 12:03 PM
Just moved from Visual Node to this so first thanks for what seems to be a great advance.
Second,
I'm using socket.io over node.js and since node on a regular Azure site does not support socket.io (as far as I understood it was due to issues with web sockets support) I am currently deploying my project as a Cloud Service.
Is there a project template that supports this configuration?
It currently seems that the node Azure project is targeted at a regular web site hosting node using iisnode.

Thanks,

Hi intraz,

We currently support Cloud Service's Web Role. Please see the docs here: https://nodejstools.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=AzureDeployment

We have a work item to add support for Cloud Service's Worker Role: https://nodejstools.codeplex.com/workitem/114

Is there any time estimate on that work item?
