NPM package for Visio JavaScript APIs

Visio JavaScript APIs extend the capabilities of Visio Online by enabling developers to build rich mashup solutions to meet their organization’s specific needs. The solution needs to reference the Visio JavaScript library from the CDN location at, https://appsforoffice.microsoft.com/embedded/1.0/visio-web-embedded.js.

NPM is a JavaScript package manager and the visio-web-embedded.js is published as part of the Office NPM package, as a copy of what gets published to the official CDN above.

Installing

1. Get NPM.
2. Create a new folder on your machine for your package and navigate to that folder using command line interface.
3. Run the following commands for installing the Office NPM package containing the Visio JS.

Once installed, the script reference can be used as
<script src=”node_modules\@microsoft\office-js\embedded\visio-web-embedded.js”></script>

IntelliSense

IntelliSense definitions can be acquired either by
• Running npm install @types/office-js using command line interface or
• Referring the index file as ///<reference path=”node_modules\@microsoft\office-js\dist\office.d.ts” />
