In my last blog post on how to make live-reload possible in SharePoint Online. I mentioned the possibility to write an application customizer that one the connection to your local workbench. Now I released the first version of this tool.
While working on a small side project on a Sunday, I asked myself the question. Is it possible to use live-reload when I developed a web part on SharePoint Online? I had to search for an answer for that and guess what? I found a solution.
This solution is not only for development but also for a production compilation of a SharePoint web part or extension.[Read more]
During development or the product design or project, you like to avoid external dependencies as much as possible to keep your code secure, reliant and consistent. With these baselines, I want to cover some aspects of Fluent UI that you should consider before adopting it. To be more specific the reason when considering Fluent UI are related to the web version.
Last week I discovered a leak that effects documents published on Workplace from Facebook. After filing a white hat report, I got a response from Facebook’s security team. It seems that they are not concerned that customer data are exposed publicly by their platform via public content delivery networks. The leak is how this platform treats documents and how sharing works.
“Access for everyone” and “discover the secrets of connected companies” are taken literally.
With Markshell I created a small tool that allows you to output Markdown files directly to the console. Why that? Right now, when you write a CLI or any console application, you like to provide some help for it. On the other hand, you also want to have proper documentation set up on Github pages or only in the Github Repo.
Markshell is precisely for that and helps and provides this opportunity and helps you to avoid writing multiple documentations.
I am currently working on updating my old style guide project and one of the central things there will be that I hide commands like yo, gulp serve, and so on behind a CLI. The fact that I have to write two times the same documentation leads to the idea, inspired by a talk with Waldek Mastykarz, to output Markdown files on the console directly.
While working on a side project, I asked myself the interesting question if it would be possible to use SVG in CSS as a background image.
It is relatively simple if you use the SVG as an external file, but what if the object of the background is simple and I like to use it directly as an SVG is CSS.
In the past, I always base64 encode the source of the SVG image, which is not needed.
There are multiple ways to add custom web fonts to SPFx projects. The best options are to load fonts from a CDN, your own, a commercial provider or via fonts.google.com.
Sometimes this is not enough cause our customer has their custom fonts or my want to use a custom font for a single web part only. Let me show the steps to get this accomplished in the SharePoint Framework.[Read more]
Austria has been in shutdown mode for more than ten days affecting both school and universities. Both teachers and students have tried hard to continue their lectures and started to use all kinds of technologies available to them. It’s probably an understatement to say they’re all overwhelmed.
The school system in Austrian was caught off guard in some ways. With E-learning platforms hardly used, they became from one day to another essential.
Another tool that now makes its appearance in Education is Microsoft Teams, where no one ever thought about it before. Now it is omnipresent not only for business but also in the school system and used for communication and exchange with students and pupils.
