Content editor web parts will always be better than rich text editors because they give you more settings and features. However, adding code through a rich text editor is much faster as there is no need to create new documents or use formatting tools to apply codes.
This article will go over all of the steps for both ways to add html into your pages using content editor web parts or rich text editors.
With the Rich Text editor, you are able to add pictures, videos, links, and other media into your posts. You also have access to formatting features such as bold, italic, and header tags.
Content editors are much easier to use than regular rich text editors because they take out of the picture some of the advanced features.
You can then insert this snippet into a page or site content area using the Site Settings -> Writing section under Miscellaneous. This method is more professional as you get to choose how it looks and theme it, but requires additional software to use effectively.
There are many free tools that allow you to edit, organize, and deploy snippets. Many of these have mobile apps so you don’t need access to the internet to make changes.
Inline scripting is not limited to content editor web parts, you can use it anywhere within your site where there’s space for adding additional content. It works best if you want to quickly insert something small like a button that users can easily edit.
Vue is an open-source frontend framework that was designed to make developing rich applications easy. It uses a concept called components which help you organize your code into more manageable pieces.
Components allow you to develop web applications quickly by letting you create user interfaces (UI) out of prebuilt ones. For example, instead of building UI elements such as lists, forms, and modals yourself, you could use a component like Bootstrap’s Modal element to easily build them.
Using this approach also allows you to create very rich experiences that use advanced js techniques. For example, you can build spinner widgets, drop down menus or even chat windows using this technique.
In this article we will go through the steps to do just that- building a simple chat window with Bootstrap. We will be doing all of our work in Visual Studio for Office 365 and the browser version of SharePoint Online. (This tutorial was written assuming you have some basic experience working in Microsoft products such as Windows, Outlook and OneDrive.)
Step 1: Install necessary tools
First things first, you will need to make sure your computer has the appropriate software installed. You will need to have access to Microsoft Edge, so make sure you have that set up beforehand.
You will also want to have Node Version Manager(NVM) installed, which helps you install different versions of node easily. Make sure you are able to run both the stable and beta versions of node before moving forward.
Last but not least, you will want to have Visual Studio 2017 or higher installed.
The first thing we are going to do is make use of something called rich text. Rich text allows you to insert images, videos, documents, etc into your posts easily.
There are several different ways to learn web development by practicing creating projects using content editor web parts (CEWPs) and other types of web pages or applications.
However, there is one thing that almost everyone runs into when trying to implement any kind of custom script: browser compatibility!
Making sure your site works for users who have browsers without rich editing features or functions is very important. Browsers like Chrome and Firefox have gotten pretty good at offering limited customization, so it’s easy to forget how much power they offer.
Luckily, there are some helpful resources out there! Websites and forums with large communities may be able to help you find what you need. You could also just test things yourself by using either Google or Mozilla’s dev tools to look up potential issues.
