November, a month of transition - where warmth yields to cold, light surrenders to dark, and work dances into the festive season. Amidst this transition, the UI Bakery team has been busier than a squirrel collecting nuts, crafting an array of novelties that'll make your heart skip a beat. We've unveiled new components, juiced up our self-hosted version, and more! So, cozy up as we unwrap the presents we've got for you this November โ˜•๏ธ


Fresh components: accordion, alert, color picker, divider, multi-select ๐Ÿ›Ž๏ธ

  • Accordion: It's like a magical box, but for cards! Enjoy collapsible cards with diverse content.
  • Alert: Your go-to for displaying notifications - now with four types (Info, Warning, Success, Error).
Color picker
  • Color picker: A color palette supporting HEX, RGB, and alpha channels.
  • Divider: Dividing content blocks with style - choose your color and even the text within.
  • Multi-select: Now standing proud as a standalone component.


[ON-PREM]: Sending emails via SMTP ๐Ÿ“ง

The self-hosted UI Bakery version now allows you to send emails via SMTP. No more looking around for third-party email providers like Sendgrid. Find all the details on configuring this feature here.


[ON-PREM]: Editable IDs for data sources and roles ๐Ÿ–Š๏ธ

Editable IDs for data sources and roles

In our self-hosted instances, you can now freely add or edit the IDs of user roles and data sources during creation. This tweak works wonders, especially when you're using multiple instances using Git to copy your apps. Say hello to smoother app transfers! Learn the basics about this feature in our handy guide.


Compact app view ๐Ÿค

Compact app view

Say hello to a more compact density for your application! This setting shrinks component sizes, margins, and fonts. Remember, it's adjustable per application, so tweak away for that perfect fit!


HTTP/2 Support ๐Ÿ’ป

We've enriched support for HTTP/2, bringing in a series of advantages - binary protocol, server compression, and the ability for multiple requests to dance concurrently over a single TCP connection. Plus, we've got your back with good ol' HTTP/1.1 compatibility.


Draft row variable ๐Ÿ”–

Draft row variable

Introducing the cool new {{draftRow}} variable! It showcases the fresh values currently being updated in your table//form/detail components. Pair that up with the new table trigger 'On Cell Change' - it'll call for action whenever a cell is changed.


Masked inputs ๐Ÿฅฝ

Masked inputs

Text and email input components just got fancier! Now, you can add a mask to set your required field format. Choose from the predefined masks or add a custom mask in JS mode.


Date picker components: first day of the week setup ๐Ÿ“†

Date picker components: first day of the week setup

Set the rhythm! In date picker components, you can now designate the first day of the week to your liking. No more default Sunday blues!


โ€A sneak peek at what's next in UI Bakery (hint: it's not bread, it's features) ๐Ÿ”ฎ
