In this PnP Webcast, we concentrated on one specific client-side web part sample available from the SharePoint Framework web part GitHub repository. This client-side web part shows how to build a real time notification model with SharePoint Framework, which indicates when there are changes in the server side for the web part. Implementation is using React.js, Office UI Fabric React components, Azure Logic Apps, Azure Storage Queue, socket.io and a node.js based server side implementation hosted as Azure web application. That might sound complex, but in the demonstration section we’ll cover the different steps one-by-one to demonstrated how things are actually working. It sounds much more complex than it is.
Notice. When this webcast was released, SharePoint Framework was available as a Developer Preview release.
Presentation covers following topics:
- User interface of the provided web part sample
- Logical architecture of the implementation
- Implementation details and used technologies
Web cast demo (8:42) shows following details
- How real time news web part works from UI perspective
- How socket.io library is used with the web part and in the server side implementation (node.js)
- How Office UI Fabric React components are used for providing consistent user interface
- How Azure Logic App has been created to poll changes from SharePoint Online list and to add them to Azure storage queue
- How Azure deployment is automated using Azure Resoruce management templates
Web part demonstrated on the video is available from SharePoint Framework Web Part GitHub repository.

What is SharePoint Patterns & Practices (PnP) web cast series?
SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release new around 30 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and a live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP YouTube channel with additional references on the existing materials.
PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen in our GitHub repositories under dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open for anyone from the community. Download invite from http://aka.ms/SPPnP-Call.
This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning’s for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback around PnP program or this blog post, please use the Microsoft Tech Community (SharePoint Developer group).
