The goal is to be able to have a set of functions that do work against our SharePoint tenant. How they are triggered (HTTP Trigger, Timer Trigger, etc) is irrelevant, what is relevant is that I want to leverage the same Azure Application and its corresponding certificate, as well as some common code for all the functions.
Spfx Web Part properties can now have metadata, which can be indexed by search engines, and can auto-update if it is a URL and the refrecned asset is moved.
The Prince Estate, alongside Pantone Color Institute™, the global color authority, announced today the creation of a standardized custom color to represent and honor international icon, Prince. The (naturally) purple hue, represented by his “Love Symbol #2” was inspired by his custom-made Yamaha purple piano, which was originally scheduled to go on tour with the performer before his untimely passing at the age of 57. The color pays tribute to Prince’s indelible mark on music, art, fashion and culture.
This short whitepaper introduces the PnP Provisioning Engine […] now days with the new CAM the approach should be based on provisioning artifacts using the so called „remote provisioning“ technique. But what does mean to do „remote provisioning“? It means using the Client Side Object Model (CSOM) to provision artifacts, instead of using the feature framework.
Well, and what if I want to model and provision artifacts using a test and a production environment? Or what if I want to automate provisioning of artifacts, just because I want to sell my customizations to multiple customers? Or again, what if I want to define a custom site template that I want to re-use across multiple site instances, like customer-oriented sites, or project-oriented sites?
Using the new PnP Provisioning Engine, you can model – even simply by using the web browser – the design of Site Columns, Content Types, List Definitions and Instances, Composed Looks, Pages (either WebPart Pages or Wiki Pages), and much more. When you are done with the design, you can export what you have done into a persistent provisioning template format (XML, JSON, or whatever you like), and you can apply that template to as many target sites as you like.
„It is inescapable that those determining the shape of our choices when engaging with Information Technology are physically and culturally located in a very small region. Apple, Facebook, and Google are within a stones throw of each other, and even though they recruit from all over the world, there is an astonishing physic self-similarity among the people who work there, whatever their national or cultural origin.“ – Adam Greenfield, author of Radical Technologies
Following on from part 1 where I introduced the idea of automating certain Microsoft 365 PPM Project Online customisations using PowerShell, Microsoft Flow / Azure Logic Apps and Azure Functions, in part 2 I will set up an example automation for creating a Project Online event driven snapshot application on project published without having to set up any server or write any complied code!
Alan Moore’s Levitz Grid for all 12 issues of Big Numbers, continued on the next double page spread! Illustration from „Alan Moore: Storyteller“ by Gary Spencer Millidge.
SharePoint Framework and the missing script and/or content editor web part. Here are three sources to learn about how you could roll your own:
Paul Levitz probably thought about what a comic book writer does more than any of his contemporaries, or mine, and during his dozen-plus-years stint as writer of The Legion of Super-Heroes, systematized what his predecessors did haphazardly, if at all. Then, as an aid to his own work, he created three versions of the Levitz Grid  Basically, the procedure is this: The writer has two, three, or even four plots going at once. The main plot—call it Plot A—occupies most of the pages and the characters‘ energies. The secondary plot—Plot B—functions as a subplot. Plot C and Plot D, if any, are given minimum space and attention—a few panels. As Plot A concludes, Plot B is „promoted“; it becomes Plot A, and Plot C becomes Plot B, and so forth. Thus, there is a constant upward plot progression; each plot develops in interest and complexity as the year’s issues appear.
