Can someone help me decide between
JS Link and
CEWP or any alternative that you see fit?
I need to build a page (actually entire site with some 5, 6 pages). These pages should look pretty decent (Some good CSS work expected here).
And the decision is to not to use
Server object model, and I'm not going
Provider hosted app way too. So I have decided to do it through
As I said I need to do good work on branding(CSS), so what do you think is a better option for me? My thoughts are as I've to modify the templates so much,
JS Link or
CEWP, both would take close to the same number of hours. I'm looking for pros and cons of the each approach.
Once I have the custom master page in place, For the page customization, I'm looking at
JS Link. To display data from SharePoint on the pages, I can't use the OOTB web parts such as List View Webpart etc as I want to brand those web parts.
I can do one thing that is to use OOTB
LVWP and apply
JS Link or the second thing is to use
In the first case, I get the data loaded to the page without any code and only code that I need to write is to present the data on UI as per branding needs.
CEWP case, I need to write data retrieval logic as well. But data retrieval is pretty simple.
With CEWP, I have full control on my code. I'm not sure on the challenges with
JS Link. Want to hear on that. If
JS Link, is simpler and advantageous to reduce efforts, I would prefer that.
