This web part replicates the classic Promoted Links Web Part but with added features such as web part properties to change the background colour, size of background image and to select which promoted link list to use. You can download it here.

If you are interested in developing web parts using the new SharePoint Framework, this web part is a good example of:
- loading jQuery from CDN
- adding third party modules
- making REST calls
- configuring web part properties
You can find the complete source code in my GitHub repository at https://github.com/CloudDesignBox/cdb-promoted-links.
As soon as I get chance, I will create some additional blog posts on how this web part was created, breaking down the different task lists.
While I work on that, please feel free to download the code and have a play yourselves!
