SharePoint framework dev startup | npm generating | Yeoman scaffolding

This will be first step towards developing on SharePoint Framework. You will use npm to manage the packages and Yoeman for generate SharePoint framework.

[code language="powershell"]
#check for existence of Node.js; install if following not returns version
node -v

#install Yeoman
npm install -g yo

#install generator
#Office template https://github.com/officedev/generator-office
npm install -g generator-office

#move to your working folder or create folders if required
cd D:\location
mkdir "Folder Name"

#Yeoman console..and pick your generator..it should be office generator
yo
#Or else directly call callout below
yo office
[/code]

After execution of above code your can select default selections and also able to provide customized values if required.

You can be used either Powershell or Cmder. But I prefer Cmder since it gives better experience if your are a windows user. But for other OS users, you can pick as you wish.

Note: Now, your source template is generated(scaffolded) and can be startup editing with any favorite code editor such as  VS, VS code, Sublime, NotePad++ or any.

Turn off/ Hide Details panel/ Information Panel on modern SharePoint lists

Not always we require to show changes done by other which is a mandatory feature in SharePoint online.  What is details pane (aka. Information Pane)? Detail pane/ Information shows information regarding the document if you selected a one or its showing recent changes within a list or library. Follow link to Microsoft documentation about details pane. Bad news: Until Microsoft listen to User Voice , there is no straightforward way to enable disable this even you don't want. Good news: We could write a SharePoint framework extension to hack styles until Microsoft give us a permanent solution. How? I found this sample project (Inject CSS into modern SharePoint pages with React) which could reuse to our purpose. Thanks to Hugo for saving my time.  Steps to awesomeness:  Clone the project Resolve dependencies >  npm i Bundle >  gulp bundle --ship Package >  gulp package-solution --ship Upload package into SharePoint App catalog  

File attach (POST) to SharePoint 2013 List (custom) using Angular JS via REST API

Following describes how to upload attachment to SharePoint 2013 custom list using Angular JS. Note: You can be consumed the JSOM libraries to achieve this, but there is limitation of 1.5 Mb. Better approach would be consuming exposed REST API (SharePoint OOTB) which allowed up to 2 Gb of file to attached using client side scripts i.e. Angular JS. . Here I have used the “Angular File Upload” which capable of doing more tasks other than basic HTML input file control. By consuming this we can attach multiple files either to the list and etc. You can be found the information on how to include this module to your Angular view in following link. Use package manager command to install the scripts. For bower  -->        bower install angular-file-upload For nugget -->       npm install angular-file-upload It requires file buffer array to POST (save) our attachment via REST API, browsers FileReader API is required to use. Its available with almost all common browsers. You need to ensure t

Eliminate Duplicates in Microsoft Flow and Azure Logic Apps

There is no straight forward method or Microsoft Flow action  to eliminate values in a collection like Microsft Excel (as of March 2019). This little hack will help you to eliminate/ remove duplicates and create a collection of unique values. Sample scenario: Need to send daily summarized notification to assigned approved with pending approval items. Sample workflow: Initialize an array Iterate collection of data and append items that are not there in the filtered array Side note: This won't be an option to consider if you too concerned about the performance of the workflow but for the time being its an option to consider.
