SharePoint Add-in Recipe - Master Pages
master pages, OfficeDev PnP, remote-provisioning, SharePoint Add-in model
The approach you take to implement custom master pages in SharePoint sites is different in the new SharePoint Add-in model than it was with Full Trust Code / Farm Solutions. In a typical Full Trust Code (FTC) / Farm Solution branding scenario, custom master pages are created to implement a custom brand. The master pages are typically packaged in a feature that uses declarative code and a FTC / Farm Solution to deploy the master pages and register them with the SharePoint site.
In a SharePoint Add-in model branding scenario, custom master pages may be also be used. You can deploy and register your custom master pages on SharePoint sites via the remote-provisioning pattern.
