I tried to run this template on Azure Web Apps.
But it was failed.
I found that the issue is caused by the Web Apps architecture (e.g. using iisnode and Named Pipe, and restriction of connection to 'localhost' ).
Especially, named pipe (and unix pipe) is not supported by latest(1.4.2) of nuxt.js.
It will be supported from this commit of 2.x.
Do you have any plans to change version of nuxt.js?
I published two repositories.
horihiro/nuxt.js is forked from v1.4.2 of nuxt.js to add support of named pipe.
horihiro/nuxt-express-azure-webapps is generared by this template, and is added some commits to run on Azure WebApps.
