Developing SharePoint Online solutions with open source toolchain
About This Video
Understand the development workflow of SharePoint SPFx
Design projects on SPFx by provisioning, adding PnP Libraries & connecting them to developer workbench
Deploying SPFx in various scenarios
SharePoint SPFx Development Model is designed to help both new and existing developers better acquaint themselves with the new set of tools required to do the job, as well as providing clear instructions how some of the server-side full trust development model practices can be achieved with this new framework. Moving into the cloud and away from server-side takes away certain customization capabilities, but enhances the client-side look and feel. Relying on the SPFx framework, this new model can be used to create modern lightweight web applications in SharePoint Online.
In the third volume, we will cover the newly emerging community-driven SharePoint Framework, short for SPFx. It is viewed as an expansion of existing Add-in model, focusing on delivering custom client-side web parts and page layouts, with more functionality in the roadmap. We will cover another emerging community driven client side development model that uses open source tools and does not require add-in packaging.
We will cover the basic open-source toolchain and development workflow using this model. Later, we’ll develop a client side web part, as well as cover debugging, deployment and versioning of our solutions.
In the end, we will list a number of active community resources, which are being constantly worked by a joint team of Microsoft internal representatives as well as SharePoint community’s most active MVPs.
