Here is another fun one for the books! In this article, I will explain how to fix a problem with the Azure IoT Edge dev simulator, when it fails to start due to an underlying problem with Docker not having access to your defined ports. This will probably happen to one of the ports used by the Edge Hub system module by default – 5671, 8883, or 443. Problem So,…Continue reading How to fix “Cannot start service edgeHubDev: Ports are not available: listen tcp 0.0.0.0:8883”
Another one in the series of “random things that break when you try to run Docker on Windows”! I was just minding my own business, trying to run an Azure IoT Edge custom module – a Docker container, really – locally, when suddenly everything broke and one of my Docker containers wouldn’t run anymore, which broke the rest of my stuff pretty badly. Instead, it failed with a cryptic and…Continue reading How to fix “exec user process caused: no such file or directory” in Docker on Windows?
This article describes a simple fix to an issue (well… One or many possible issues), where git fails to pull anything from remote, throwing instead an error somewhat like this: fatal: no such branch: ‘master’ Bah. This stops you from pulling any new changes from remote, and likewise, it will stop you from pushing your new stuff out there. Always something going wrong with git, right? But what is the…Continue reading Visual Studio Code fails when running “git pull” for a new project
This post describes how you can modify your SPFx webparts to make them compatible with usage in Microsoft Teams. I’m also showing some basic ideas of what you can do in the code to make the integration more useful! Why would we do this? Who wouldn’t want to just develop once and then run their code everywhere? Now with SPFx (SharePoint Framework), 1.8 being out (and 1.9 being out for…Continue reading How to Teamsify an SPFx solution?
Instead of being stuck on whatever version your SPFx project was originally created with, it’s possible and sometimes required to upgrade it afterward to gain access to newer functionalities like integration with Microsoft Teams. This process, to me, is comparable to updating the .NET Framework version in your classic web application projects – while it’s sometimes a matter of simple configuration change and a rebuild, most of the time there…Continue reading How to update SharePoint Framework for an SPFx webpart?
SPFx development is a bottomless bag of funsies! This article describes yet another way how to fix the error with your SPFx webpart failing to load a module. In this case, you’ll get an error that starts with the generic “Failed to load component” -part, but contains “There was a network error” later in the stack. I’ve written about this before, but I keep running into new ways to mess…Continue reading SPFx webpart fails with “Failed to load component – – There was a network error.”
