“A cup of dev” (aka this blog) is not a full year yet but I thought it would still be interesting to see what blogposts got the most views in 2021.
One common trend is that the top 5 blogposts are all related to Microsoft 365 development, and even though that is not surprising since that is my niche – I’m glad to see that those are the blogposts that are most appreciated in the community. But if you are more interested in general web development topics you might enjoy my blogposts on accessibility, developer soft-skills ottips and tricks.
So here are my top 5 most read blogposts starting with the most popular.
1. Create and add a custom color theme to SharePoint using PnP powershell
My most read (based on views) blogpost in 2021 was the first post I published when I started the blog. The blogpost covers how to create a custom color theme, making it available in your tenant, and how to add the theme to a site.
2. Enable sideloading of apps in Microsoft Teams
If you are working on developing apps for Microsoft Teams, sideloading the app is an easy way to test it. In this blogpost I cover how to enable sideloading on your tenant, and how to upload your app directly to Teams to test it. If you are developing apps for teams you might also like mye blogpost about how the new (in ocotber 21) developer portal makes it even easier to administrate and test your Teams apps.
3. A beginners guide to Power Apps Component Framework (PCF) part 1: Setup, test and deploy
Like a lot of my blogpost this was written out of frustration of the lack of beginner friendly documentation on a subject I was new too.
There are two parts in this series, and I’m currently working on a new updated series that will cover the topic more in depth.
This blogpost is actually one of my most recent blogpost, and I’m guessing it made the list because it was mentioned in PnP weekly episode 144. My follow up blogpost on the subject, how to update field values in SharePoint using Microsoft Graph was mentioned in PnP weekly episode 146. I’m really greatful to have been mentioned twice in the podcast and it really makes me want to work more on creating good content for the community. <3
5. How to deploy your SPfx solution using PnP powershell
The blogpost in 5. place covers how to deploy an SPfx solution (.sppkg) to your app cataloig using PnP powershell.
