Microsoft announces the general availability of SharePoint Framework

Microsoft today announced the general availability of SharePoint Framework. Using this, developers can use modern web technologies and tools in their preferred development environment to build experiences and apps on SharePoint that are responsive and mobile-ready.

With SharePoint Framework, developers can start building client-side web parts using modern script development tools and the SharePoint Workbench. And they can deploy your client-side web parts to classic web part pages in Office 365 Developer tenants. It works alongside common scripting frameworks, such as AngularJS along with JavaScript. For example, they can React along with components from Office UI Fabric React to quickly create experiences based on the same components we are using in Office 365.

SharePoint Framework General Availability release will be rolled out to Office 365 tenancies.
