Azure Static Web App–Inject snippets

As a follow-up on the presentation I did at CloudBrew about Azure Static Web Apps I want to write a series of blog posts.

Before I continue with authentication and authorization, I want to spend one last post on configuration and more specifically on snippets.

Snippets is custom code that can be injected into the head or body elements at runtime. This is useful to inject for example analytics scripts (Google Analytics, Application Insights, …) or global UI elements.

Adding a snippet

Open your Static Web App in the Azure Portal and go to Configuration:

Select the Snippets tab and click on Add.

Now we can specify

  • the location where the snippet should be injected(head or body)
  • a name for our snippet
  • if the snippet should be added to the beginning(prepend) or the end(append) of the location
  • the environments where this should be applied
  • the code itself

Click on OK to create the snippet.

If we now browse to our site, we see that the snippet is added to our page:

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
