how to create and deploy Master Page and page layouts using the SharePoint Framework?

SharePoint Framework is all about related to creating client side webparts only?

1 Answer 1


As of now, you cannot create master pages and page layouts using SharePoint Framework.

In SPFX, there is nothing like Master Pages and Page Layouts. You can try SPFX extensions for Page Styling. Here are a few links for your help:

  1. Link 1
  2. Link 2

Hope the above will help you. Let me know if you need anything else.

  • thank you very much for the reply, we would be using the same approach as we have in SP2013 to create master pages and page layouts using the design manager? Commented Jan 7, 2018 at 13:25
  • Yes, you can do it but only for SharePoint 2013 Classic pages but not for SharePoint Framework. And request you to please upvote and mark my answer if it was helpful to you.
