SPMeta2 Reverse

SPMeta2.Reverse provides a simple API to generate SPMeta2 models from the existing SharePoint sites. As easy as that. We are aiming to reverse engineer O365, SharePoint 2016/2013 web sites and generate a valid, redeployable SPMeta2 model.

Auto merge CI - 5, added appveyor full build on cake

Reverse API

The project is still in alpha with source code avialable at github:

Reverse API should be made simple, so here is how we see it happening:

// SharePoint CSOM context - O365/SP2016/SP2013
var context = ..; 

// create the magic reverse service
var service = new CSOMReverseService();

// reverse the SharePoint site and web into M2 model
var siteModelResult = service.ReverseSiteModel(context, ReverseOptions.Default);
var webModelResult = service.ReverseWebModel(context, ReverseOptions.Default);

// here we go, your M2 models backed for you
// deploy later to other SharePoint site, farm or serialize and keep it for the future
var siteModel = siteModelResult.Model;
var webModel = webModelResult.Model;

Stay tuned, we'll be updating document with more samples once stables reverse API id released.
