Simplifying the Creation of JSON
Site Designs and Site Scripts provide one of the mechanisms we have today to extend modern SharePoint Online Sites (Modern Team Sites, Communication Sites and Hub Sites). Site Scripts are JSON files using a specific JSON schema as documented by Microsoft.
The task to create a Site Script should not be complex… but in case you don’t like working with JSON files or just because you are used to work with visual tools, there is a visual tool that simplifies the process to create a site script. The tool created by Mikko Punamäki is available and does a good job of generating a JSON file for a configuration created visually in the JSON visual designer.
We cover Site Designs and Site Scripts in Chapter 9 for the Office 365 for IT Pros eBook.
