Some time ago, I published a blog post related to a web part that I use on the hosted workbench page while creating other web parts. I have this solution deployed on my dev tenant and simply add it to the bottom of the Workbench page to work around some things that get in the way when building the UI of SPFx web parts.
There are plenty of solutions available online, from complete implementations to blog posts with the relevant code snippets, but I was also unable to find one that was able to track full and partial page loads, so I decided to tweak one to work on the required scenarios.
If you know me or follow me on Twitter/LinkedIn, you must have realized by now how much I like the PnPjs library. But this library will hopefully get even better soon by providing support for Project Online REST API!
With a recent update to allow it to easily connect to APIs secured with Azure Active Directory, SharePoint Framework is the new King of enterprise solutions. As a SharePoint developer, this means that you will likely have to create Azure Web Apps or Functions to be consumed by your SharePoint Framework application, so why not use an ARM template for common scenarios? The following ARM template will, hopefully come handy and save you some time.
SPFx is suddenly not an option and you feel sad because you need to go back to write plain JS? You don't have to and you really shouldn't. Spend just a few minutes and you can do it in Typescript instead!
In this post I will show you a safe (and extremely simple!) option to use Bootstrap with SharePoint without messing up the "out-of-the-box" SharePoint UI on the classic experience.
SharePoint offers an OOB web part that you can use to list the recent documents for the current user. But what if you need the exact same information for a custom SharePoint Framework solution?
SharePoint offers an OOB web part that you can use to list the frequent sites for the current user. But what if you need the exact same information for a custom SharePoint Framework solution? WARNING Unfortunately, it seems that this is not currently possible using the SharePoint REST API or MS Graph. The API used … Continue reading Get list of frequent sites in SharePoint
When creating SPFx solutions, you will sometimes require base64-encoded images. A common scenario is when you create a ListView Command Set extension . And then you look at Office UI Fabric Icons and think how nice it would be if you could easily get the images as base64-encoded strings. And today I found a great tool to do this!
A few days ago, I was trying to set some managed metadata fields in a SharePoint library using the Set-PnPListItem command - which is greatly documented. But having worked with SharePoint for quite a few years, I immediately noticed that the examples in documentation for managed metadata fields did not contain the exception case for terms with the '&' character in the label. I had to deal with this case multiple times before, so writing this blog post to hopefully save some time in the future.
Ever wondered how to add SharePoint Framework web parts from different solutions to your local workbench while developing on localhost? Then look no further
A SharePoint library (root folder) or library folder fields can be configured to use default values. For example, if you configure default values in a folder, documents added to that folder will inherit those field values by default. This functionality is great when you have a project that heavily relies on metadata being inherited through multiple levels of information.
