SharePoint Framework, which is perhaps the update that has been the most heavily anticipated by those in the developing sector, has now been released on a general basis by Microsoft.
This enables both IT administrators and developers to construct and use parts that users of Office 365 deploy within their own production environments. The practical advantages of this are the ability to construct mobile friendly, responsive and agile SharePoint apps utilising web technologies. This general release represents a major move towards enhancing the developer experience with SharePoint.
It provides developers with access to those libraries and tools that have been created to allow for mobile web part development, at the speed reflecting the expectations of workers and the rapidly changing landscape of enterprise tech.
Framework, which the software giant unveiled during a conference last spring, represents a big part of its future SharePoint strategy. This is because it allows for the open source tooling support, graph integration, and client-side development that fits with Microsoft’s vision of intelligent, mobile content collaboration, sharing and discovery.
The SharePoint team’s senior product manager, Bill Baer, stated that: “Developers need a more efficient toolchain and model that allows them to scale beyond the current constraints. The client-side development framework will deliver capabilities that will help Microsoft engineers, partners, customers and developers throughout the community build powerful, rich applications.”
