I planned to write a blog post how to run the SharePoint Framework Workbench in a Docker container on Azure. After I found out this is currently not possible I switched the scope of my trial. Instead, I tried to create Docker container dynamically for projects based on SPFx.
There are two key takeaways explained in this post. You will learn how to build your Docker file specific for your upcoming projects, and you get to know how you can demo and try out all SPFx Pattern and Practices samples regardless the version currently needed by those projects.
Last week the great opportunity to record a pattern and practices web cast together with Vesa Juvonen and Waldek Mastykarz on our Office Quick Contact Sample. Check out the official announcement post on the Office Pattern and Practices Blog.
The presentation can be found on the Office Pattern and Practices.
Recently I added the code of my blog post on “How to deploy binary files from SharePoint hosted App” to the Office 365 Pattern and Practices repository. During the monthly community call I was able to present my part of these additions.
I case you missed the monthly call you will find the screen recording on Channel 9.
If you like to create a responsive user experience it is common practice to add a <meta name=”viewport”> tag to the html. This tag contains instructions to the browser in the matter of viewpoints and zooming and make sure that your web design is scaled properly according to your style definitions. Without this tag SharePoint on an iPhone will look as seen on the screenshot below. Currently SharePoint doesn’t support it by default.
