Manage tenant-scoped SPFx extensions across your SharePoint sites

Manage tenant-scoped SPFx extensions across your SharePoint sites

SPFx web parts deployed at tenant scope will appear everywhere in the picker, but for SPFx extensions there is still something you need to do locally, and that’s “associate” your extension with the site/web/list/field. For Application Customizers, it’s this step which allows you to control exactly which sites use your extension.

Custom modern page header and footer using SharePoint Framework

Custom modern page header and footer using SharePoint Framework

The SharePoint Framework gives us a new way to deploy JavaScript-based customizations to SharePoint. These include web parts (for both classic and modern pages) and now Extensions such as Application Customizers that allow you to embed JavaScript on modern pages.

To extend the functionality of my SharePoint-hosted add-in to modern pages using the SharePoint Framework, I created a new SharePoint client-side solution containing an application customizer extension to handle the rendering of the header and footer on all modern pages, reading the same configuration values from the site property bag that are set by the add-in part from my original SharePoint-hosted add-in.

Next to client-side web parts, extensions are new types of customizations, SharePoint developers can build to extend SharePoint. In the developer preview you can build

  • field customizers, which control the rendering of fields in list view, similar to JSLink
  • list view command sets, which you can use to add options to list menu, similar to Ribbon and ECB extensions using custom actions
  • application customizers, with which you can embed custom scripts to run on all pages, similar to script injection using custom actions

Additionally, the preview includes placeholders which you could compare to server-side delegate controls and an API to build dialog windows.

SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-vs-extension: Visual Studio extension

The Visual Studio Extension for SharePoint Framework wraps the command-line UI of the Microsoft Yeoman Generator (yo @microsoft/sharepoint) into a familiar Windows Forms experience, executes the generator project scaffolding behind the scenes and creates a Visual Studio project that includes all the necessary files for a complete web part project
