VIDEO – SP Editor Chrome Extension

If you’ve ever edited a JS file hosted on SharePoint, download this now.   Watch the demo video to see how easy it is to press F12 and edit JS / CSS files within SharePoint directly from F12.   No more SharePoint Designer or Explorer View drive mapping madness.  You can work from Visual Studio Code or any text editor. 

For any front end developer working on SharePoint, this is a must have.

Download all Documents in a Library View

The PowerShell below will download all documents in a given SharePoint Document Library view to the local folder.   This can be safely run on end user Windows PC and does not require SharePoint server access or object model.    The design relies solely upon HTTP to discover the list of Document URLs then HTTP to download the binary content.    Simple and straight forward. 

Just edit the URL and GUID number on the first 3 lines and you’re ready to run.   Alternatively, you can supply those values via CMD parameter like this:

Enjoy!
