PnP Framework documentation
PnP Framework is a .NET Standard 2.0 / .NET 5.0 / .NET 6.0 / .NET 7.0 library targeting Microsoft 365 containing the PnP Provisioning engine and a ton of other useful extensions. This library is the cross platform successor of the PnP-Sites-Core library.
History and Roadmap
The original PnP-Sites-Core library only works on Windows (due to the dependency on .Net Framework) and supports SharePoint on-premises and SharePoint Online, while this library will work cross platform but only supports SharePoint Online. Going forward we'll only be actively maintaining PnP Framework, the PnP-Sites-Core library is retired and archived.
Next to PnP Framework that will be replacing PnP-Sites-Core we're also building a brand new PnP Core SDK that targets modern .NET development and which will work everywhere where .NET will run. This library is the long term evolution of PnP Framework, we'll enable a phased transition from PnP Framework to PnP Core SDK without impacting PnP Framework users.

Migrating from PnP Sites Core
This library is the cross platform successor of the PnP-Sites-Core, see the Migrating from PnP Sites Core to PnP Framework guide to learn how to switch over.
