The Visual Studio Code Extension named ‘CSSComb‘ is required to make this working.

Roundup from the PnP/SPFx 1.8.0 release

The following enhancements already have been introduced in the previous release.

Additional updates for PnP Libraries

Easy selection of TypeScript version

TypeScript Selection

SPFx does not support multiple TypeScript versions for all SharePoint Online projects. For more straightforward configuration, you can directly pick the desired version, and PnP/SPFx add all updated dependencies for you.

So no more manual upgrade to a newer TypeScript version for newly created projects.

Office UI Fabric integration

Office UI Fabric Selection

Office UI Fabric can now be selected directly during the provisioning process of a new project. In case of SharePoint Online, it allows you to select Office UI Fabric 6.0.0 with or without the Fluent Theme.

SharePoint 2016 or SharePoint 2019 based projects also come with this support, but in this case, the older Office UI Fabric version 5.0.0 can be used.

Additional Frameworks

Additional vetting options

Project upgrades powered by Office 365 CLI
