Reusable Modern Web Parts (shared between pages)

New Contributor

I feel there's a necessary component missing from SharePoint's modern layout:  Reusable/Shared web parts.  Maybe there's another approach (driven by lists?) that I'm not fully thinking through.  

 

Desire:  A Quick Links (or similar) section on multiple pages.  When I update it once, I'd like it to update for all.

@kduck Great Idea.

There are a few community driven web parts that are list driven. So that when you make changes to the list, it will be reflected in the links web part.

The one I like is the Hub and Link Web parts https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-solutions/tree/master/solutions/LinksAndHandlebarsTemplate

You can upload the hub-web-parts.sppkg file to your app catalog to start using.

@kduck Yes, this is a needed feature for SharePoint. All other mature CMS platforms allow you to do this easily. I should be able to use a standard,  existing web part, fill it with content and customize, then make it useable anywhere on my site. This is standard practice for other CMS systems AND web programming in general.
