MORE UPDATES: Inject Custom CSS on SharePoint Modern Pages using SPFx Application Extensions

A while ago, I wrote an SPFx Application Customizer that allows you to insert custom CSS on your SharePoint modern pages and posted about it.

The solution is now a sample in the SharePoint SharePoint Framework Extensions Samples & Tutorial Materials repo.

I received lots of feedback, comments and questions about the article so I decided to write an updated article to answer the most frequently asked questions.

I have since updated the solution to SPFx 1.8 and created a simple automated deployment script to (hopefully) reduce issues.

UPDATE: Inject Custom CSS on SharePoint Modern Pages using SPFx Application Extensions

A while ago, I wrote an article describing how you can inject a custom CSS stylesheet on SharePoint modern pages using an SPFx application extension. The code sample is now part of the SharePoint SP-Dev-Fx-Extensions repository on GitHub.

Since the article, I have been getting tons of e-mails asking all sorts of questions about the solution.

Since SPFx 1.6 was released, I took the opportunity to upgrade the solution to the latest and greatest version of the toolset. You can find the latest code on GitHub, or download the latest SharePoint package.

In this post, I’ll (hopefully) answer some questions about how to use it.
