In this video, we'll create a simple JSON template that describes a Web App, a master Ubuntu VM, two client Ubuntu instances and the custom script extension paired with scriptgen to automate the deployment of an Azure-hosted APT repository with a hook metapackage across many VMs.
scriptgen is a Node.js application that serves scripts via HTTP, using GET/POST parameters as template variables for the scripts. It allows you to move complexity from the JSON template to a simpler backend.
Check out the Azure documentation for using PowerShell (or azure-cli) for your deployments.
Also, here are some other C9 videos:
