Short version How do I provision Content Types and Site defs in Sharepoint online, onto my host web? I would prefer reusing existing content type definitions
We are migrating a fairly large SP2013 -> SP Online (Provider Hosted)
The part I'm working with is the provisioning, I've been looking at the pnp and they seem to recommend NOT using Feature-provisoning, but they give no reason to why.
Does anyone know why?
I want to re-use all content type definitions. So I was thinking about copy pasting them to my appweb-project, then somehow getting them to the host-web and provisioning them there, where I want them.
The alternative would be to keep them as loose xml-files in my provider web, use AddFieldAsXml(), using parts of the xml...but it seems hacky.
I would much rather do the first alternative.
