I am building SharePoint Online Web Parts with ReactJS and the apps are stored in the SPO Store as Apps. I obviously have to upload and currently doing it via VS Code and the gulp commands. This is starting to be painstaking long and was wondering how can speed up the Dev pipeline esp on commands like gulp upload-to-sharepoint --ship or gulp upload-app--pkg?
My js files (bundled files)can take anywhere between 10mins to 25mins to upload.
My current enviro is as so:
- SPO - SPO Web Parts - VS Code
- ReactJS 15 - Gulp - build tool
I have PowerShell too if that can help.
Eventually I will be doing automated builds and deploy with help of VSTS and aim to automate the whole process but that will be wack if upload times are still the same!
UPDATE: Just tried this here: https://www.spdavid.com/use-gulp-and-npm-to-automate-2/ but the 'gulp default' command runs then ends and cursor back to showing root i.e. C:/blahbla/blah> and not in process. In his screenshot he's running just 'gulp' and this doesn't work either. I don't know if this will speed up the process at all though, even if it worked.
