Azure: how download the whole Azure website as zip file - and other useful tools

I needed to download my local Azure website as single zip file (to improve download speed, compared with thousands of files downloads via ftp).

I've found the article Windows Azure Websites online tools you should know about that describes in detail the SCM website.

Pratically it uses the Azure REST api to give a lot of information about your website. Debugging it (with Fiddler, for example) you can analyze and study them. And also from the menu, going to Debug Console | PowerShell, you can browse your folder structure and zip what you want to download quickly.

The link to open is: https://{site name}.scm.azurewebsites.net
