Without a doubt, the SharePoint Framework is one of the most successful adoptions and customisation models that has ever found its way into SharePoint, and there are reasons for this.
Over the past years, I talked and worked together with many developers that haven’t ever touched SharePoint before or found its way into this Application.
Many of those had a background in C# while, especially for a branding project, was more living in the web world. The overall feedback was that it is this kind of development unique in many ways.
Today I published the first beta version of the upcoming PnP/SFPx version 1.6.0. It is the most significant releases since the launch of the Angular Elements support for SPFx.
Instead of adding new frameworks at the moment this release focuses more on your development workflow. There are updates included that helps you to write cleaner code, reduce bundle sizes and last but not least helps you on testing your ReactJS projects.
Like I promised yesterday. You can even run a specific SPFx generator version with a specific NodeJS version through the help of NPM.
While it might not is a practical approach it can help you sometimes when you like to run for example an older version of the project to test some behaviour before you fix the issues.
It’s been a while since Rob Wormald from Google introduced the first web part using Angular Elements. Last week a new version 1.4.0 of the PnP SPFx Yeoman generator was released.
