Template Hub for SharePoint

The SharePoint Template Hub makes it possible for you to have a centralized repository for your templates. It solves the issue with one-to-one relationships between Content Types and Templates by splitting this up, and give you the possibility to reuse a content type for several templates without any implications. All templates can also have metadata connected to them that will come over to the document when it is saved in the target document library.

The document template repository is a standard SharePoint Document Library, thus it supports all the standard metadata, publishing and workflow features for working with your document templates, just like you would expect with regular documents.

Corporate News App for SharePoint 2013

This project is an open and free App for SharePoint 2013. This tool helps site owners to add simple corporate news client app parts in SharePoint sites. With this app, you could have a dedicated app for a SharePoint site to manage news content directly in SharePoint lists or libraries, and you will be able to insert in pages 3 different client App parts to display these news with Javascript animations, like vertical or horizontal carousels.

Caml Designer 2013

The functionality of this version of the tool is similar to what it offers you for SharePoint 2010:

  • you can build CAML queries for single lists
  • you can build queries that can be executed with SPSiteDataQuery
  • beside the pure CAML queries, you can also get code snippets for the server-side object model, the .NET client-side object model, the JavaScript client-side object model and last but not least code snippets when working with REST.

With this first version of the tool you are not able to connect to SharePoint 2013 online yet, but it is definitely something we are going to look at for next version.

Responsive Frameworks for SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013

The goal of this project is to provide popular grid and responsive frameworks converted to SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. That is right, we are taking the best pre-build web front-end frameworks and doing the hard part for you, converting them to work within the SharePoint environment. Our current plan is to convert the two most popular frameworks,Twitter Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation (3) and convert them to work in both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. In SharePoint 2013 we intend to also utilize Design Manager. Documentationincluded in each package is very thorough as we attempt to explain how to use the framework packages.

SharePointToolBox #007 SP SIN SharePoint Script – Style INjector

SP SIN is a free solution (available on CodePlex) created by Bjørn Furuknap

SP SIN (from SharePoint Script/Style INjector) solves an age-old problem for developers and administrators, how to add script and style sheet resources to SharePoint without modifying master pages.

This problem is more complex than it seems because SharePoint allows and encourages changes to systems that are in production. How can you ensure that the changes you make work before deploying them to all users? How can you create versions of script and style sheet resources so that you can maintain backwards compatibility with previous solutions?

SP SIN solves these problems by allowing site owners, or those granted permissions, to inject script or style sheet resources into pages without touching any of the pages. All of this is accomplished using SharePoint best practices and recommended approaches only.
