I asked some questions about SPFx few days ago. I still have questions in mind.

I used some development tools to create my first web-app with SPFx :

  • Node.js
  • Gulp
  • Yeoman
  • Typescript
  • Visual Studio Code

My first web-app works well. In fact, I don't understand how the framework works. I shall like knowing :

  • What is the role of Node.js ? In practice, what does it do ?
  • What are interactions between my web-part page, Node.js and SharePoint ?
  • How my web-part arrives directly built on my SharePoint workbench ?

I didn't find neither a schema to illustrate interactions between different elements of the architecture or explications.


To get a better understanding, I would suggest watching some of the PNP videos provided on YouTube. They provide great training on understanding the framework.

Also, check out the Overview Docs on the Office Dev Center.
