It's good to look at a more realistic sample of building an Add-in that goes beyond the templates from Visual Studio or the Yeoman generator. In this video we'll look at a sample of creating a specialist dictionary application.
- [Instructor] Lets apply all this by looking…at a sample of creating a specialist dictionary glossary,…so this will look something like a real application.…Well, first of all, let's create a new project…with the Yeoman generator.…So, I'm back here in PowerShell…and I'm in the Addins directory.…I'm going to run yo office, usual thing.…
I'm going to create an Office Add-in project using React.…We'll call it something sensible this time.…We'll say Glossary.…It's gonna be for Word.…And now I can go down into my Glossary subdirectory.…I'm gonna start up Visual Studio Code.…And we could look at our code and we've got the…index tx component…and then the app.tsx component…inside the components directory.…
So we already have the office-ui-fabric components included…because we can see them up here.…The libraries are loaded.…The import is there for some of the controller we want.…We'll probably want to add a few more.…So here's how the glossary's going to work.…We'll select some text in a document…and the add-in will analyze the text…
