Azure Cross-Platform Command-Line Interface (xplat-cli)
The Azure Cross-Platform Command-Line Interface (xplat-cli) provides a set of open source, cross-platform commands for working with the Azure Platform. The xplat-cli provides much of the same functionality found in the Azure Management Portal, such as the ability to manage websites, virtual machines, mobile services, SQL Database and other services provided by the Azure platform.

sudo apt-get -y install nodejs-legacy npm sudo npm install -g azure-cli
