SharePoint Framework State of the Union (Fall 2019) from Microsoft Ignite 2019

Saturday, November 16, 2019 2:31 PM

Like previous years, Microsoft delivered a session at the Microsoft Ignite 2019 conference that was essentially the “State of SharePoint Framework”. This session, BRK3071 - SharePoint Framework: What’s new and what’s next, started with a review of what the SharePoint Framework (SPFx) is and where it can be used. The second half of the session covered what’s coming next with SPFx, both in the short & long term. In this post, I’ll recap what was shared and share my thoughts.

SharePoint 2016, 2019 & SharePoint Online: Which Version of the SharePoint Framework Should You Install?

Friday, November 1, 2019 9:41 AM

Customers can leverage the SharePoint Framework (SPFx) in any of the modern or recent SharePoint versions. This includes SharePoint Online & SharePoint on-premises versions SharePoint Server 2016 & SharePoint Server 2019. To build a SPFx project, you use the Yeoman generator for the SharePoint Framework to create your project and get started. But there seems to be some confusion on which version you should install depending on your target SharePoint environment. Let’s clear this up, once and for all.

Jest Preset Update October 2019

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 8:30 AM

Late last year I published a few Jest presets to simplify adding automated testing to your SharePoint Framework (SPFx) projects. These are complete with example tests including testing the rendering of components, testing async functions using promises or callbacks and even simulating user events. You can learn more about the presets in the original post, Enable Jest testing of SharePoint Framework Projects in One Simple Step. In this post, I want to share some updates to the presets that have been published.

Dealing with Undefined 'this' in React Event Handlers in a Performant Way

Thursday, October 3, 2019 9:30 AM

When I’m teaching React to developers, one thing that comes up often is dealing with a common error. But here’s the interesting thing: it’s not running into the error that comes up all the time, its how to deal with it that surprises them. I’ve always wanted to have something to point to that the scenario & why one option is better than others, even though there are plenty of ways to address the issue. That’s what this post is!

SharePoint Framework Summer 2019 Wish List

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 9:17 AM

I originally intended to write this post a mid-summer, but just never happened. Thankfully my wish list hasn’t changed for the SharePoint Framework (SFPx) since the spring of this year… wait, maybe that isn’t a good thing? Please don’t take these as complaints about the SharePoint Framework, the people who work on it and support it, or Microsoft as a whole. I’m a fan of the SharePoint Framework. I love how it is helping to bring traditional server-side SharePoint developers along to the modern world of web development and client-side customizations. So many parts of the toolchain and skills they are learning by working with SPFx are immediately transferrable to non-SharePoint projects. As you read through my list, you may notice a theme: time for some maturity. The SharePoint Framework has been available since early 2017 and every few weeks, we see Microsoft share graphs of constant growth in adoption during the community calls). With some strong momentum, personally I’d like to see Microsoft slow things down, hold a bug bash & focus on reliability.
