Azure Function (JavaScript)


What Is An Azure Function? 


It is the equivalent of the Amazon Lambda. Azure can be written in JavaScript/NodeJs or in C# (Using dynamic C# or ScriptCS syntax). There are different ways to trigger a function
  • On demand via an http (HttpTrigger)
  • Periodically (TimerTrigger)
  • Trigger by blob storage, queue or event hub creation

This is the default source code for a Http triggered function.

module.exports = function(context, req) {

    context.log('Node.js HTTP trigger function processed a request. RequestUri=%s', 
                req.originalUrl);

    if (req.query.name || (req.body && req.body.name)) {

        context.res = { 
            status: 200, 
            body: "Hello " + (req.query.name || req.body.name) };
    }
    else {

        context.res = { 
            status: 400, 
            body: "Please pass a name on the query string or in the request body" };
    }
    context.done();
};


Code Structure

Here is my attempt to write a Azure Function and build some re-usable code.
function AzureFunctionBaseClass(context, req) {

    this._context = context;
    this._req     = req;

    this.__terminate = function(m, status) { 

        this._context.res = { status: status, body: m };
        this._context.done();
    }
    this.succeed        = function(m) {  this.__terminate(m , 200); }
    this.fail           = function(m) {  this.__terminate(m , 400); }
    this.getQueryString = function()  { return this._req.query;           }
    this.getBody        = function()  { return this._req.body;            }
    this.log            = function(s) { this._context.log('[log]%s', s);  }
    this.getParameter   = function(n) { return this.getQueryString()[n];  }

    this.run = function() {

        var s = "Inherited run "+(new Date());
        this.log(s);
        this.succeed(s);
    }
    this.__init__ = function() {
        
        this.log("__init__ running");
    }
}

AzureFunctionBaseClass.create = function(functionType, context, req) {

    var l = new AzureFunctionBaseClass(context, req);
    functionType.call(l, context, req);
    l.__init__();
    return l;
}

function MyAzureFunction(context, req) {

    this.run = function() {

        var s = "Hello " + this.getParameter("name");
        this.log(s);
        this.succeed(s);
    }
}

module.exports = function(context, req) {

    AzureFunctionBaseClass.create(MyAzureFunction, context, req).run();
}
