Getting started with Azure-hosted JavaScript applications for Office

Sign in to queue

Description

One of the questions I get from open source developers is how can they target the Office platform without having to commit to the .NET ecosystem. Some people are surprised to learn that Microsoft ships Office.js, which lets you as a developer use any Web framework and use Office.js in your frontend to interact with, say, Outlook.

In this video, I'll create a simple HTML/JavaScript application, host it in Azure Web Sites, and use Office.js to interact with an Outlook mailbox in an Office 365 tenant.

Code for the HTML and Manifest are on GitHub. If you want to learn more, check the full tutorial on MSDN (as well as the reference!)
