The Azure Developer CLI (azd) is a developer-centric command-line interface (CLI) tool for creating Azure applications. The goals of the CLI are to:

  • reduce the time required for a developer to be productive
  • demonstrate opinionated best practices for Azure development
  • help developers understand core Azure development constructs

To take full advantage of the CLI, code repositories need to conform to a well defined set of conventions that will be recognized by the tooling. Please checkout the wiki for more information and to get started. Use discussions to participate in the conversation, ask questions, and see the latest announcements.
