Visual Studio Extension for SPFx v1.8 Now Available
Fellow Visual Studio enthusiast Paul Schaeflein and I (read: two old-timers who like the way things used to be and would prefer if the youngsters would just get the heck off our lawns) have released the latest version of the Visual Studio Extension for SharePoint Framework. Paul has the details in his blog post.
He also notes the ongoing issue with the SPFx Yeoman Generator command line that I blogged about previously. As this issue had not been resolved prior to release, we simply put some instructions into the configuration dialog so developers would know what steps to take after project generation is complete. Feel free to comment here or in the Github repo if you need additional clarification or assistance.
Paul and I will be delivering a session on Enterprise SPFx development at the upcoming SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas, May 21 – 23, 2019. Be sure to join us as we demonstrate the use of the extension in a complete, end-to-end ALM scenario with Azure DevOps and SharePoint Online (there may still be a few tickets available, use discount code SHUPPS or SCHAEFLEIN to save a few bucks on admission).
