  1. React web part to group documents based on metadata – a full-featured web part called List Item Menu which allows developers to dynamically generate a collapsible menu of items pulled from a list or a document library, as an alternative to hard-coding menus.  Items show within expandable and collapsible menus, grouped by any document library column.  The web part works in SharePoint and Microsoft Teams and supports section theme colors.
  2. Using Aurelia in SharePoint Framework – Aurelia is a collection of open-source, extensible Modern JavaScript modules used for building browser, mobile and desktop applications.  The PnP SPFx Aurelia tool is part of the Yeoman generator.   Aurelia makes it easy to package views into reusable components.  Reviewed binding code, attributes, ViewModel, custom elements, dependency injection and compose element. Fluent UI wrapper for all components that are found in GitHub Repo.
  3. Building generic feedback form with SPFx, including panel and email sending capabilities – this is an application that gathers user feedback through a web part that can be used directly on a Modern SharePoint Site page or article.  The functionality allows users to send “categorized” feedback via email to users in the “Feedback Owners” group.   Example categories – suggestion, typo, can’t find it, about article.   Feedback submitters receive email confirmation.   React sample in PnP samples gallery.
