August Platform Update

Posted: August 25th, 2017Author:

Another month, another platform update! Here’s what’s on for the coming August update coming in a few days.

New Android Cordova Library

We have updated our Android Cordova library version to 6.2.2. This version will be selected automatically in new projects.

Also, we now support Android SDK tools 26.0.1. This means more features, more plug-ins available to import, and being able to export
Appery.io projects to the latest Android Studio.

Adding Limits on the Request Body Of Custom And Generated Services

Until now API Express services didn’t have a limit on request size, but we know that some of you really need this option. In this release, you’ll see this message if the body of the request is more than 5 MB:

Ability to Order JS and CSS Files Inclusion

In previous releases of Appery.io JS and CSS files were executed by creation date. Yes, this was really annoying in some cases. Now you can go on the App settings tab, open Resources, and select the order of these files. For instance, simply drag the CSS3 file and drop it on the top of the list and this file will run before the CSS1 file if you like.

Extended Database Statistics

There are are a lot of different stats you might want to know about a database: longest requests, successful requests, error requests, information about collections with issues, selected operation, and much more! All of this data is now available on the Statistics tab of your database. Just look at the screenshot:

Ability to Create an Index for System Fields

Our users can already use system fields in their queries (a really useful capability). So for better performance, we have added a possibility to create indexes for system fields. Check it out!

Multi-Language Support Updated

In Appery.io, you can easily build an app that provides a UI that switches among several languages with the updated and improved i18next plugin.

Bugs (Less of Them)

A large number of bugs were fixed by our development team. You’re gonna like it!
