The New September Release Has Arrived!

Posted: September 14th, 2020Author:

Autumn has come and we have new updates for our platform! In this release, we focused our efforts on new Ionic 4 features.

Ionic 4 Range Component

This slider feature lets users select from a range of values by moving the knob. It can accept dual knobs, but by default one knob controls the value of the Range.

 

Ionic 4 Modal Window

We have added a no-code option for opening modals in Ionic 4, similar to navigate to page action. Now you can pass values and parameters to certain variables on modal close and open.

Ionic 4 Switching Checked State

To make app development faster, we changed the checked state of the following Ionic 4 components:

Now the states of these components are updated at every mapping invocation.

Files Manager

You can now upload any type of file (not just images using our Media Manager). To do it, in your app, go to the App settings > General tab and upload the needed files under the Assets section:

Bugs (Less of Them)

No update is complete without bug fixes. So, yes, we fixed many large and small bugs to make the platform better.

Keep in Touch

If you run into any hiccups with this release, please reach out to us via the forum or by sending us an email. (To send us an email, sign in to the platform and click the Get Help link at the top.)

Our developers are always happy to help you with your application. Thank you for your business, and we hope you enjoy these new improvements to our platform.

The Summer Release Has Arrived!

Posted: July 3rd, 2020Author:

In this release, launching this weekend, we have a lot of good news for you about these topics:

  • Toggle component
  • Chart component
  • Fonts
  • Emails from Server Code
  • Datetime component
  • CurrentItem
  • API Express backups

So, without further ado, let’s look at each in more detail.

Ionic 4 Toggle component added

We continue to improve the Ionic 4 framework in our platform. Now we have added a new component, Toggle. If you don’t know, toggles change the state of a single option. They can be switched on or off by pressing or swiping them. Please check:

Chart component updated

The Chart component has proved to be a useful and frequently used feature. We have finished beta testing, fixed some issues, and are now ready to fully roll it out for production.

Font handling improved

We have added the ability to set the default font in App Settings. It is applied in the Visual Editor to have the same font displaying as the Preview and can be reset just like the icon.

Feature to send emails from Server Code added

Now you can send emails using Server Code (our feature for writing app logic on the server using JavaScript). We are sure that this will be a very useful for our users and that they will appreciate it.

Datetime component improved

Now, using the Datetime component, the user can enter hours and minutes into the database without adding the TSC code.

CurrentItem options added

Developers can now update and delete currentItem from an array.

API Express project backup upgraded

Security providers will now be added when you export an API Express project.

 


Bug fixes

What update goes without fixing bugs? So yes, we fixed a large number of big and small bugs to make the platform better.

May 2020 Release: Small Things, Big Difference

Posted: May 8th, 2020Author:

The May release for Appery.io mobile app platform is coming this weekend. The main new additions are:

  • Default Proxy
  • Ionic 4 DateTime component

Default Proxy

Our current implementation only allows calling REST services via the API Express service. Many users find this feature to be convenient. But, not all user do.

Starting with this release, you will be able to connect your REST APIs via proxy. We had such a feature a long time ago, but now we are reintroducing  it—this time much faster and even more stable.

Ionic 4 DateTime Component

We are constantly improving on our most advanced framework, Ionic 4. In this release, we are adding the DateTime component:

DateTime presents a picker interface at the bottom of a page, making it easy for users to select dates and times.

Bug Fixes

We work hard every day on bug fixes, many of which are rolled into this release. We are really happy to have you using Appery.io, so we want to make the platform the smoothest, most comfortable, most reliable place to work in possible.

Greeting Spring with a New Appery.io Release

Posted: March 2nd, 2020Author:

Our March platform update rolled out on March 1. We continue to focus our main efforts on the most advanced Appery.io framework, Ionic 4. We have already added plenty of Ionic 4 tutorials for it (for example, making a todo list app, using Google maps, working with the ngx-translate library, and adding file uploading). Now we are going to add new components. Just take a look at the new palette:

Checkbox

Checkboxes allow the selection of multiple options from a set of options. Of course, you know this. And now the corresponding component is available for Ionic 4!

Form

You have to agree that it is much easier to create different forms (like login and signup forms) with a special component.

Link

The link component is used for navigating to a specified link. Similar to the browser’s anchor tag, it can accept an href for the location and a direction for the transition animation.

 

Chart Component

Now you can add and display any type of chart from the popular chartjs library by just clicking one button!

And More…

We have simplified working with some Cordova plug-ins (Camera, Push), added the capability to quickly delete Server Code folders with content, and added the “File” type for an Input component.

Appery.io Community: Video Channel

Posted: January 22nd, 2020Author:

An integral part of Appery.io’s success has always been its strong community of developers. Now we have come up with a new way to support this community—a YouTube channel called Appery.io Community. This channel will include new tutorials from the Appery.io team, but, more importantly, it will also include videos submitted by our developer community. Submitted videos can explain different features of Appery.io, or they can showcase developers’ own apps developed with Appery.io. With this channel… Ugrade your development skills by checking out the videos. Upload a video to share your app with the world or a potential customer. Upload a video Appery.io tutorial that you created on your own.

Let’s get started! Send me your videos (or your ideas for videos).

Meet Our Last Release of the Year

Posted: December 22nd, 2019Author:

In this release, we focused our efforts on Ionic 4 features.

We added PWA support for projects created in Ionic 4. (If you have forgotten what this is and what it’s for, please check this useful post.)

Also, we added the ability to use default values (strings, numbers, booleans, and values chosen from select) in the mapping for beforeSend actions in Ionic 4 projects. We are sure that many of our users will be happy to use this feature in their projects.

Finally, we improved splash images for iOS including launchscreen for iPhone X.

Happy Holidays from the Appery.io Team

We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See what we achieved this year!
