Platform release #146 and runtime release 2.4.17 (2020-12-10)

This major release comes with an upgraded version of the mobile/web runtime, so be sure to update your AppGyver Preview app from Apple App Store/Google Play!

Breaking changes

We've strived to keep everything working seamlessly, so opening your app after upgrading the Preview app should not result in any changed behaviour by default – please let us know of any regressions on https://tracker.appgyver.com!

That said, there are a few breaking changes to take note of.

Update flow functions

All flow functions should be updated to their latest versions to ensure compatibility.

Specifically, older versions of Show spinner and Hide spinner will not work with the new v2 runtime.

Web navigation

Web navigation has been improved, and now there are proper modern routes that can be refreshed (an upcoming feature is to enable you to customize the routes too).

With this update, we no longer try to emulate mobile-style stack navigation on web. The only active contexts are the current page and the global canvas. This means that e.g. events on pages not active are not triggered – such event handling should be moved to the global canvas.

Also, you can no longer open the same page twice in a row, unless the new page has different parameters. Thus, you can open your "Movie Details" page with id parameter 1, then open "Movie Details" again with id parameter 2 – but not with id 1 again.

Finally, we've disabled the soft back button on web navigation header, as it's an anti-pattern and browser native back should be used instead. The plan is that you'll be able to enable it back manually in an upcoming release!

Non-authenticated pages

If your app has auth enabled, and you want to open a page (e.g. "Create account") from the login view, you need to enable the new Allow page to be opened without authentication property for those pages.

The plus side is that now opening regular and modal pages from the login view works the same on all platforms!

Closes https://tracker.appgyver.com/bug-reports/p/cannot-open-page-while-in-initial-view.

Access to the old runtime

If you find yourself needing access to the old runtime, it is available via Preview app versions under the AppGyver Legend codename:

Furthermore, you can now still build 1.9.22 runtime version standalone apps via the Build Service.

Known issues

The below issues are known regressions from 1.9.22 present in 2.4.17 runtime, that will be fixed soon in an upcoming release.

  • Component drop shadows are not working on Android

  • Composite component internal properties, output values and private variables bindings do not work if the binding is to an object sub-property directly, i.e. internalProps.obj.a doesn't work but formula internalProps.obj.b + "!" does.

  • Rich text component doesn't apply Typography styles

  • Using formulas in Dropdown component Option list property items (when using Custom list binding type) doesn't work

New features

Composite components v2

A major change is how composite component properties are treated. The move is towards a much more isolated design, where the idea is that a composite component will never utilize page/app/data variables or other app-specific functionalities directly, but rather expose events and properties that can then be hooked up to your actual app logic.

This paves the way for true reusability across apps, and we already have the first new components published.

The UI in isolation mode has been overhauled, with properties now available via a switch at the top.

See sample components in the gallery!

Component property types

To clarify how the different component properties behave, they have been split into three types, indicated by a little arrow icon next to the property name.

The biggest difference is that the new two-way property type limits what can be bound to them to ensure correct functionality.

  • Configuration properties are "one-way" into the component, i.e. they are set from the "outside" and the component never changes them. For example, text content or input keyboard type. You can bind anything to them.

  • Two-way properties are "two-way" in the sense that changes in the bound value (e.g. page variable) affect the component, but the component itself can also affect the bound value (e.g. bound page variable changes when the user inputs something). You can only bind page/data/app variables to two-way properties.

  • Output values are "read-only" from the app perspective, and meant to reflect an internal state of the component, such as "Loading" for a data list component. This will be used more in Composite components v2 – read more below!

Conditional renderer

The new Conditional renderer component is now available to simplify situations where you want to render different things based on your app state.

Set repeated item value flow function

This new flow function acts as a shorthand to change the value of current in a repeated item’s logic context. This will only work if repeating data directly from an app/page/data variable, but not otherwise.

For example, you could be repeating a list where the items have a Timestamp property. To update that to the current time, you would simply use Set repeated item value, setting Timestamp to formula NOW().

Two-way bound repeated inputs

When repeating an input field (or any component with a value/two-way type property), you can now directly bind e.g. current.price or any other formula to the repeated component’s property, with changes propagating back to the variable bound as the repeat source.

Note that this only works for direct app/page/data variable bindings, not through formulas yet.

Closes https://tracker.appgyver.com/bug-reports/p/input-field-binding-doesnt-work-for-nested-object

Custom fonts in Preview apps

Custom fonts now work in Preview apps on all platforms. Closes https://tracker.appgyver.com/bug-reports/p/custom-font-not-showing-in-preview-app and https://tracker.appgyver.com/bug-reports/p/web-version-fonts-do-not-work

New formula functions

The following new formula functions are now available for use:

  • UNION

  • SYMMETRIC_DIFFERENCE

  • SPLICE

  • SOME

  • SET_ITEM

  • SET_ITEM_AT

  • REMOVE_ITEMS_AT

  • REMOVE_ITEM

  • LAST_ITEM

  • INTERSECTION

  • INSERT_ITEMS_AT

  • INSERT_ITEM_AT

  • FLATTEN

  • FIRST_ITEM

  • EXACTLY_ONE

  • EVERY

  • DIFFERENCE

Improvements to repeats with formulas

Previously, if you set a list to repeat based on a formula like

SELECT(appVars.sourceData, CONTAINS(item.title, pageVars.searchString))

changes to pageVars.searchString caused issues with "ghost" components appearing.

This is now fixed and works as expected. Closes https://tracker.appgyver.com/bug-reports/p/repeating-components-with-the-repeat-source-bind-to-a-formula-can-cause-ghost-co.

Recycler view (beta)

The new Recycler view (beta) component allows you to load and display almost arbitrarily large (thousands of items) lists fast. It works by only rendering a certain number of items on the screen at once, and when the user scrolls, rendering them just-in-time to give the appearance of a never-ending list.

A recycler view must have a single child component that is set to repeat itself. It also must have a height like Scroll view, either via flex rules or by setting a specific height property.

You cannot repeat the recycler view component itself.

Camera supports selfie mode

The Take photo flow function has new Camera type property – set it to front for selfie camera!

Fixes

Release #145 (2020-11-20)

Added

Fixed

  • Fixed the UI issue when editing JavaScript logic functions where inputs with long labels could not be removed, as the remove icon disappeared.

Beta features 🔒

These features are only available for the users accepted to the Beta program and they do require the latest beta version of the AppGyver app in order to work. These features might still change before becoming available to everyone.

  • 🔒 When editing a component in isolation mode, you can add the following new events by using the "Receive event" in logic:

    • Component mounted

    • Component became visible

    • Component became hidden

  • 🔒 Improvements to the different types of custom component properties: the Binding editor disables accidentally binding in a way that would be in conflict with component property binding types. For example, two-way or outbound properties cannot be bound to static values or formulas, as they are read-only.

Hotfix #144A (2020-11-09)

Release #137 (2020-07-22)

This release adds preparations for upcoming new features. The experimental features are only available to certain users, but it also adds fixes available for everyone!

Changes

  • Minor improvements to the "Receive event" and "Trigger event" flow functions that make them easier to use in custom view components. Components isolated inside a view component can more easily trigger events for the "root" component, defined in the "Edit properties" dialog.

  • When editing a view component in isolation mode, in the "Edit properties" dialog, certain property names reserved for internal use have been disabled. These include id, style, and repeat

Fixes

  • Fixed the bug in "Receive event" flow function where selecting an event was not saved, but the selection was removed when deselecting and selecting the node again.

  • Fixed the bug where "Page layout" component could be selected and then deleted, causing the page corrupt. This was possible immediately after adding a new page to the app.

Experimental 🔒

These features are not complete yet and they are only available to certain users. They might still change significantly.

  • 🔒 New namespace repeatedInfo in formulas providing meta information about the currently repeated items, e.g. the current index

  • 🔒 New namespace root in formulas providing access to the current root view component

Hotfix #136A (2020-07-21)

Fixes

Release #136 (2020-07-16)

This release focuses on fixing issues found by our community.

Fixes

  • Fixed clicking the "X" in the binding editor dialog which not work in certain cases

  • Fixed an issue where the new binding editor dialog was missing scroll bar when the window height is small. Closes https://tracker.appgyver.com/admin/board/bug-reports/p/missing-scroll-on-editing-binding

  • Fixed an issue in the formula editor where the outputs of the same flow function output were offered multiple times, e.g. "Take photo", "Take photo 2", "Take photo 3", etc.

  • Fixed an issue where advanced flex-basis style incorrectly showed that the current value is the default value auto instead of 0.

  • Removed invalid categories from the binding editor dialog when selecting a page/app variable for a "Set page/app variable" flow function

  • Fixed a bug in JavaScript editor where the user interface allowed the whole output to be changed from "Object" to "Text", which does not make sense. Removed the incorrectly shown type selector from this context. The individual output properties can still be set to any type!

Hotfix #135B (2020-07-11)

Features

  • Added tooltips to the binding fields and buttons that describe that kind of binding is currently selected

Fixes

  • Fixed blank component names when selecting a component ID for a binding, for example, when using a "Focus input" flow function

Hotfix #135A (2020-07-09)

Fixes

  • When editing a data variable of a collection of AppGyver Cloud Storage data records, the UI won't any more show "Filters" or "Sorting criteria" being "Required".

  • Fixed the issue that prevented properties of repeated components being bound to.

  • Composer Pro has not supported Edge browser older than version 79, but instead of showing a message, Composer Pro appeared crashed. Old Edge browsers (before version 79) are now correctly blocked.

Release #135 (2020-07-07)

This major release brings with it updates to the Build Service and a complete overhaul of how component property and flow function input bindings are managed.

  • Complete overhaul of the binding editor.

  • Properties panel user interface is cleaned up for both components and flow function node

    • Unnecessary titles removed.

    • Action buttons such as "Show in marketplace" are now icons.

  • The Initial URL and URL scheme system variables are now available.

Changes

  • Set page/app/data variable, Open page and data-related flow functions no longer allow the target variable/page/data resource to be set dynamically, to ensure the correct schema is always presented by Composer UI.

Fixes

  • Numerous minor UI fixes and stability/speed improvements around Composer.

  • Data-related flow functions now instruct the user to configure data resources via the data configurator, if no data resources exist in the app.

  • Set app/page/data variable flow functions show a friendly message when no variables have been configured in the app instead of appearing broken.

  • Editing object/array schemas no longer cause bindings to be emptied in some cases.

  • When creating nested repeats, Composer now properly enforces a unique name to be given to the inner repeat context.

  • Isolation mode no longer stays open across page changes.

  • During multi-user editing, incoming changes from another user no longer cause an active formula edit to be discarded.

  • During multi-user editing, incoming changes from other users are now detected faster.

  • ADD_DURATION and NOW formula functions correctly return a date-time text now.

  • Open page formula function now detects Parameters property's schema from the target page.

  • New data variables now have correct default names when multiple data variables for the same resource have been added and their names changed

    • Previously, adding a data variable for Employees resource, renaming it to something else and adding a new data variable for Employees resource caused the new variable to be named Employees2 even though Employees was available.

  • Data configurator

    • REST API direct integration Set schema from response button now correctly removes deleted fields from the example value used by the binding editor.

    • If a route is not defined for a REST API direct integration type data resource, you are now prevented from using a data variable of that type (e.g. if Get collection route is not defined, Collection of records type data variable is not available).

    • For AppGyver Cloud Storage resources, show the system ID field as a non-removable part of the schema.

  • Build Service

    • Web builds are now cachebusted properly, so your changes take effect immediately after a new build is completed (though the auto-deploy takes a few moments more after the build is marked successful in Build Service).

    • Setting Android screen orientation and removing it doesn't break your builds anymore.

    • You can now see build history properly for each platform (previously, history showed latest 5 builds across all platforms).

    • Google Maps API key can now be defined when using the Embedded map view component (previously, the API key was left out of the build and the map rendered empty in standalone builds).

    • You can no longer input dots for a web app subdomain (previously, setting the subdomain to e.g. my.app.appgyverapp.com caused builds to fail).

Fixes

Release #134 (2020-05-27)

Features

  • Data resources can be now cloned via the three-dot action button at the right side of the data resource in the data resource configurator main list view.

  • Multi-window editing support (beta). When editing the same project in two separate browser windows, changes are merged every 15 seconds. If conflicts arise, conflicting changes are discarded.
