Create or Remove a SharePoint App

A PowerShell with SharePoint tutorial

PowerShell iconWhen you use PowerShell, you can use a script to create multiple apps of the same kind in very short time and remove apps just as quickly. In the demo below, Peter Kalmström shows how to do it in a simple way.

In following articles, we show more elaborate, and better, methods that lets you create multiple SharePoint apps by just running a SharePoint script, but this article is needed as a basis.

In PowerShell the apps are called "list" and that also includes libraries. When you create a list, you can specify which app template to use, and Peter shows how this is done in the easiest way.

Peter creates a list called "Hello World List". It is a generic list with versioning enabled, and it is visible on the SharePoint Quick launch. To have a user friendly URL he sets the last part of the URL to "HelloWorld"

New-PnPList -Title "Hello World List" -Template GenericList -EnableVersioning -OnQuickLaunch -Url "HelloWorld"

In the command that removes the list, Peter adds a parameter
that forces the removal and don't ask for a confirmation. PowerShell with SharePoint from Scratch cover

Remove-PnPList "Hello World" -Force

You will find more detailed explanations in the book.

In the next article, we will see how apps can be created with a function. This gives a possibility to create multiple apps with different names in just one script run.
