Fetching User Profile Information using the SharePoint Framework Client Side Webpart

Microsoft made some major announcements on May 2016 regarding the “Future of SharePoint”. This announcement brings a whole lot of new things into the picture around the modern team sites, new publishing pages, new UI for list and libraries, new home page for the sites etc. As a developer, one of the biggest change amongst these new changes is a new development model called the SharePoint Framework. Our focus on this article will be to do some deep dive into this new development model and use it to build a sample client side webpart.

As per Microsoft, “The SharePoint Framework is a page and web model that provides full support for client-side SharePoint development, easy integration with SharePoint data, and support for open source tooling. With SharePoint Framework, you can use modern web technologies and tools in your preferred development environment to build productive experiences and apps that are responsive and mobile-ready from day one. The SharePoint Framework works for SharePoint on-premises and SharePoint Online.”

SharePoint Framework is a new modern and improved development model announced by Microsoft. It is a model that is solely focused on client side development. This new model is pure JavaScript based.  This allows developers to use modern JavaScript and web template frameworks to build applications. We don’t even require a SharePoint server to preview our customization. We have the SharePoint Workbench that provides us a test environment on our desktop itself. 

With the release of the first developer preview for the SharePoint Framework on August 18, 2016, we can actually do some research and get our hands dirty as to see what this new framework brings for us.
