This little script saves me thousands of keystrokes and hours of wasted time while building SPFx (SharePoint Framework) solutions. Generating a production level build is one of the most annoying parts of building SPFx solutions. In the Visual Studio world we could just hit a button and BAM! a package shot out the other end. Well, that is not entirely the case with SPFx. First I have to ‘gulp clean’ then ‘gulp build’ then ‘gulp bundle’ then ‘gulp package-solution’ then goto the folder. This get old quick, at least for me it did. There were a few ways I tried to fix this and the simplest way was to make a batch file that would call all the commands. I’m sharing this with you so that you don’t have to do any experimentation or try writing your own.

build-prod.cmd

Put this file in the root of your SPFx project and run it in the command line. Of course you have to watch for errors. This is something I usually run one I know i have a clean + working build. Don’t forget to increment your build numbers 🙂 Happy coding!
