comment Web template WSP works on sharepoint foundation 2013 but not showing up in office 365
sorry, no, I mean you are deploying to your Foundation environment - the one that works - from Visual Studio. In O365 you have no option but to upload it yourself. Have you activated the Feature in your O365 site?

comment Get distinct values via mechanism used when clicking “Show Filter Choices” on a Sharepoint list using Javascript
You are getting into some really complex stuff here - more complex than a QA site can support. You are on the right track though. That request that loads the select is in the Fiddler traffic somewhere downstream. Good luck!

You should be able to Fiddle the network traffic that occurs when that filter is clicked and find the call yourself. telerik.com/fiddler

I'd like to hear from someone who's done actual scalable solutions to real problems with App technology, as opposed to pasting in marketing copy from MSDN

comment How to get contenttype name in clientside(javascript, jquery, csom etc) in editForm?
The OP's question is poorly worded, but I think he wants to grab the CT name from the Form, not through a query. +1 for the blog reference though!

comment How can I provision Custom Default.aspx to sites?
No, there is no "SubWebOnly" attribute I'm aware of. If you do not want the home page on the root web, do not activate it there. You might need to break it out into its own feature if that makes sense.

comment Execute JavaScript through a workflow?
you'd be better off forgetting the workflow and adding some global code (either linked from the master page or through a custom action) that polls the list in question, say every five seconds, displaying a notification whenever it finds a new item. You can also get the ID, Title, and any other attribute you like in this manner.

Where does the "DesignPackage" class come from? Is that built into the CSOM?

comment Novice Developer
I haven't read that book, but it might be more realistic than you think. Real world SharePoint development is exactly like that. MSDN and the blogosphere are full of stuff that doesn't work, omits important details, or only addresses the most trivial of use cases. Then you are left having to fill in the missing or inaccurate bits yourself.

comment How to grant access to a list view but not to entire list
Good answer, +1, but the OP needs to clearly understand this approach is not securing the data, it is merely obfuscating it. A smart, highly motivated user armed with a search engine will figure out a way to view that data, and there really isn't a way to block that short of restricting access to the list and surfacing the desired data through custom server-side code. Depending on the nature of the data and the strictness of the requirement, this may or may not be sufficient.
