Should be able to use azure-cli credentials from the sdk

See original GitHub issue

With the amazon cli tools, after one does aws configure, the credentials saved to ~/.aws/config will be sufficient for the AWS SDK to “just work” (in any langauge’s SDK!).

The Azure SDK for Node.js seems to require apps to implement their own credential store, according to what docs I’ve found. Instead of requiring yet-another credential storage, apps ought to be able to try to use the credentials saved in ~/.azure (/accessTokens.json?).

Getting some kind of parity with the ease of use of the Amazon SDK would greatly expedite the speed at which developers can get online & using the Azure SDK for Node.js. Please consider implementing this usability enhancement. It will help developers in their 0th hour greatly.
