I was wondering if it is possible to reuse the original document library app inside a custom app.

It's my first time considering developing a SharePoint app in order to replace an old PHP app, and the document management of the document library app correspond to the user needs but i have to add the others features of the old application inside the sharepoint in order to replace it.

  • You can add this library to the app. What do you mean by reuse Out of the box Library app? – Venkat Konjeti Jun 9 '17 at 14:11

I do not believe you can "reuse" the OTB SharePoint document library app. You will want to take a look at Working With Folders and Files with REST to gain an understanding of how to do CRUD operations on document libraries.

Also, if you haven't already, you will want to go over the new SharePoint Framework for developing custom apps using Microsoft's new development model.
