GitHub codespaces + SPFx

In this blog post we will have a look at how we can use GitHub codespaces to do development related to SPFx. The concepts that are mentioned in this blog post run in parallel with the details shared in this brilliant article on Visual Studio codespaces by Paul Schaeflein.

In this 2 part series we will start by looking at:

  1. What GitHub codespaces are and how to create them. After that we create a simple SPFx webpart in GitHub codespaces.
  2. How to push the code of the SPFx webpart from GitHub codespaces to a repository in Azure DevOps.
