comment Any way I can add “Orange” theme or composed look within onet.xml or feature staple, office 365?
Btw, that screenshot above of "Change the Look" isn't from the Thmx engine, those are Composed Looks.

There's a 15 folder in the theme gallery, that's what I was referring to.

Why don't you use Composed Looks? They're easier to manage, easier to build and are better supported.

If you do find a "hack" you'll have effectively broken the concept of Code Access Security which was a core component of the .NET Framework. This is the reason it's not possible.

I can't answer your questions - but first I'd attempt a restore of your backup to make sure you can restore.

How supportable is this? If this isn't documented anywhere then MSFT may update this location at any time through an update.

All SharePoint Assemblies are 64bit, always have been since SharePoint 2010 - make sure you're built to AnyCPU.

comment How can I add an app instance programmatically or declaratively?
I found the server side call a few days ago actually, and for some really odd reason I thought you were after a client side variant.

comment Deleting lists upon feature deactivation
You don't need to use RunWithElevatedPrivileges to do this - instantiate a new SPSite using the SystemAccount user token instead. Never use RunWithElevatedPrivileges if all you work with is SharePoint object model code in the delegate.

"Configuration changes", how were you handling configuration before? You have a lot more flexibility in Apps nowadays.

comment jQuery to hide columns in a view
You can still use this technology (JSLink) to render exact what each row will output. You can then test the values of other fields in the row (such as the password type) and decide how to render the password, if at all.

comment jQuery to hide columns in a view
JSLink is absolutely awesome, btw, if you havent' used it before, have some JavaScript knowledge and despise XSLT from previous versions of SharePoint, then JSLink is the best thing ever.

comment jQuery to hide columns in a view
In that case I would use JSLink (zimmergren.net/technical/…) you have control over the logic that renders the output of each time. You might have to manually rebuild your layout as the boxed style, but at least you can do something with the fields depending on the values of other fields.

comment Where/How Do I Add Backbone.js to Home.aspx Without Visual Studio
Try again to add a <script /> tag inside a Script Editor Web Part. You might need two, one to reference your library and the second with the code you want to run (in this case, the simply alert() in the document ready function.

comment Performance: adding file via Module vs code
I'd deploy them via modules - for the simple reason being most developers do it this way - your code is easier understood by those who will maintain it in future.

comment Default.aspx via code?
As a note, if there is no good or bad recommendations either way for this answer, then I suggest that you do whatever you do for other files added to the site - that is, keep things consistent.

comment Getting file name being upoloaded in ItemAdding
For reference, you get the errors you stated because the file nor the item exists yet in the content database because the Add operation hasn't yet been completed. Why are the properties even there, then? Lazy developers, same object (SPItemEventProperties) is used across all event receivers.

a) Link to your own blog but say it's your own blog. b) Please post the gist of your post and not just the link, some day this link might be broken.
