Remote Provisioning: Create an HTML List View

In this post I will use the remote provisioning Visual Studio Extension explained in my previous post to create a Custom HTML view. In this demo what I will provision the following artefacts:

  1. Photos Document Library to store the Images
  2. Script library which will host the view JavaScript File
  3. Create a custom HTML view for the photo library which displays the images in a responsive lightbox
The example is just a simple prototype to showcase a new capability of the automated remote provisioning engine.
The steps are very simple:
  1. First Clone the github repo @
  2. Open the Visual Studio Extension Solution.
  3. Build the solution and Install the extension
  4. Create New Visual Studio SharePoint Add-In Project
  5. Right-Click and select "Enable Remote Provisioning"
  6. Go to samples folder copy all the content of the ImageViewer folder to the solution root folder
  7. Add the files to the solution
  8. Change the base Url in the ImageViewer.js file
  9. Deploy the SharePoint app to your Azure site, you need to obtain client Id and secret
  10. Now the Photos list we just created and copied files to it will appear as below

More features will  be added to remote provisioning automation engine soon, stay tuned!
