  1. Connect-PNPOnline using local certificate without PFX

    When deploying to azure, we are using the app-only pattern where we basically connect to Azure AD using an AppID and a local non-exportable certificate. When we initially created the certificate, we stored the private key of the certificate (pfx) in the AAD application key credentials and leaved the public key in the local certificates store.

    This pattern is perfect because you don't have to carry around a PFX file or hash, the only way you can connect to Azure AD is by being on the actual server which has the local certificate installed and you can't export the certificate,…

  2. Use CSS Grids and Flexbox for Layout

    It's 2017, you really shouldn't be using <table> for layout!

    SharePoint should use Grid and Flexbox for layout of not just the Ribbon, sidebar, navbar etc but for List forms too. This would clean up the SharePoint HTML and CSS considerably as well as making it easier to customise the layout of forms.

    (Sure, there's an argument to be made that there's a semantic relationship between form input and tabular data, but I'm pretty sure the 'tables for form layout' is just something carried over from earlier versions of SharePoint needing to serve browsers with poor standards support.)

    Hi – thanks for your input. Technically this has been already done at SharePoint Online where all the new experiences are natively responsive, including site pages, site contents, list or library experiences. We are also working on including these in the future feature packs for SharePoint 2016 on-premises. We are not using

    format for the layouts with the modern experiences.

    See following blog posts for additional details
