Use SharePoint Framework to build a List Based App

Copper Contributor

I'm trying to find resources/tutorials on building List-Based Apps that have been described here from @Chris O'Brien @Chris O'Brien (not sure which account) and here by Sonja Madsen. I would like to have control over the NewForm/DispForm/EditForm pages of Lists using the new SharePoint Framework.

Those types are not available in the current preview version. Focus on web parts only at the moment. These additional types of SPFx customisation will get released over time.

I work with OP. With an App Store Add-In, we don't have the permissions to programmatically add and remove web parts from the DispForm, EditForm and NewForm pages. We previously used JSLink, but it was a very clunky solution. Can we get an idea of the timeframe for the list-based apps of the sort described by Chris? We're very excited to try it out.

Did you find anything more out about this?

We've found out from Partner Support Services that List Based Apps are on the roadmap for Q3 2016. It's not been rolled out yet though.
