Please include support for "$web" blob container

See original GitHub issue

Recently at Build, support for static website hosting is announced. Static website contents go into a special blob container called “$web”. However this name is not supported by the SDK (only “$root” and “$logs” names are supported). Can we please change the SDK to support “$web” blob container?

I believe we need to change containerNameIsValid method in validate.js file. The modified code should be something like this:

* Validates a container name.
* @param {string} containerName The container name.
exports.containerNameIsValid = function (containerName, callback) {
  var fail;
  initCallback(callback, function (f, cb) {
    fail = f;
    callback = cb;

  var nameError = getNameError(containerName, 'Container');

  if (!nameError || containerName.match(/^(\$root|\$logs|\$web)$/)) {
    return true;
  } else {
    return fail(nameError);
