I was trying to deploying a Node.js app to azure app service recently but it kept timing out trying to download all the required modules.
I was able to fix this by specifying an explicit network timeout for the npm install in my azure-pipelines.yaml file
This really helps on the lower app service tiers because they are quite slow.
The network timeout is specified in the last part of this task.
