LinkedIn People Search Web Parts for SharePoint 2010

Earlier this week I created my first public repository on GitHub: LinkedIn people search web parts for SharePoint 2010. The project consists of a number of web parts that can be used to perform people search using LinkedIn JavaScript API, display the results and even refine the returned profiles similar to the way SharePoint people search works. It is a sandboxed solution since all of the functionality is client-side and is implemented in JavaScript/jQuery and currently contains the following web parts:

  • LinkedIn People Search Box
  • LinkedIn People Search Refinement
  • LinkedIn People Search Results
  • LinkedIn People Search Statistics

Follow the usage instructions to build a LinkedIn people search page that looks and feels like SharePoint people search and feel free to send me your feedback.
