Many of the properties in a web part’s manifest file are well known to developers as they’re covered in the SharePoint Framework (SPFx) documentation. For example, the
preconfiguredEntries: property contains an object of name-value pairs that tell SharePoint what toolbox group users can find the web part, the localized
description of the web part, and default values in the web part’s public properties. Other properties, like the
supportedHosts: array specify where web part can be used.
But did you know there are a lot more properties available to you?
In this SharePoint Framework (SPFx) quick tip, I want to focus on some properties in a web part’s manifest file that many people aren’t familiar with.
