Integrating Skype into a SPA in SharePoint

SPA are pretty common and recently on a project I had a request to show contacts with a SPA hosted on SharePoint.  Here is code that shall show Skype presence to the user. 

Note: Works on IE, requires the user to be logged into Skype and have the Skype client.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html dir="ltr" lang="en-US">
<head>
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10" />
    <title> Presence with Skype </title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_layouts/15/1033/styles/Themable/corev15.css" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/init.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/1033/strings.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/core.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var g_presenceEnabled = true;
    </script>
    <div>
        ​ <span class="ms-verticalAlignTop ms-noWrap ms-displayInlineBlock">
            <span class="ms-imnSpan">
                <a class="ms-imnlink ms-spimn-presenceLink" aria-hidden="true" onclick="IMNImageOnClick(event);return false;" href="#">
                    <span class="ms-spimn-presenceWrapper ms-imnImg ms-spimn-imgSize-10x10">
                        <img name="imnmark" class="ms-spimn-img ms-spimn-presence-online-10x10x32" id="imn_1,type=smtp" alt="Offline" src="/_layouts/15/images/spimn.png" sip="pb@radimaging.co.uk" showofflinepawn="1" />
                    </span>
                </a>
            </span>
            <span class="ms-noWrap ms-imnSpan">

Custom User Actions: Injecting JavaScript

Problem: Changing Master pages is not good for support and can cause your applications to break when updates are done.

Possible Resolution:  Inject JavaScript to perform custom logic and branding using Custom User Actions.  This allows you to inject JavaScript at the appropriate level and not change any OOTB pages or user controls.  Custom User actions can be applied at 3 levels in a Site collection namely at:

  1. Site Collection Level (always fired),
  2. SPWeb Level or at the
  3. List (Document library) level.

More Information:
Tool to try and add Custom User Action looks useful:
