SPCAF v7.9 blog header

SPCAF is still going strong. We are seeing a record number of users running analyses, using custom rule sets, and generally implementing SPCAF in a manner that utilizes its full capabilities.  Today, we have released SPCAF v7.8.9, and I want to highlight some of the most important features added to SPCAF over time. Here are some of the greatest hits!

Support for Visual Studio 2019

SPCAF fully integrates into Visual Studio including version 2019. Through our customer feedback, we knew this program was a firm favorite with developers who customize SharePoint and use SPCAF. It makes sense for them to run a code analysis using SPCAF from the same platform. Not having to switch between each tool saves a lot of time in running a code assessment.

Simplify your solutions with SharePoint Patterns and Practices

The Patterns and Practices (PnP) community has played a significant role in helping people apply best practices when working with SharePoint. By using the SharePoint Patterns and Practices Core component, you will not only save time but ensure whatever you build is done in a future-proof way. We include a set of rules that suggest how you could improve your solutions with SharePoint PnP. If we detect any code that could be simplified, we let you know about it and show you how to do it.

Increasing rule-list including SharePoint Framework (SPFx)

With every latest version of SPCAF, you get the latest SPFx rule-list. Updating SPCAF to the newest version keeps your automated analysis in line with Microsoft updates.

Support for analyzing contents of inline JavaScript

SPCAF analyzes JavaScript code that is embedded in parts of web pages. It’s extremely convenient for developers, admins, and architects because JavaScript doesn’t have to be moved to a standalone file. For convenience, you can now scan pieces of script that lie in HTML master pages and web pages. What’s more, there are security rules in place to detect JavaScript vulnerabilities. You can check the release notes to find all the rules relating to the detection of JavaScript vulnerabilities.
