Last week at Enonic - 2018, week 17

Bobby the Almighty is on his well deserved day off today, so today’s Last Week update will be delivered by yours truly.

Last Week

XP training is booming these days, we’ve just recently had to add yet another Content 101-training on the 9th of May because the previous one got fully booked rather quickly. Be sure to send your editors, marketers, and others that need to write and publish content in XP. We’re also running both our developer courses in London in a few weeks. Check the Training-section down below for all the details.

We’re now on Google Cloud Platform, so you can basically spin up an Enonic XP server (with loads of configurations) using a few clicks. The cost is very low, and if you’re new to Google Cloud Platform, they’ll let you run servers for a worth of $300 for free to start with.

Are you a web developer? With kick-ass JavaScript-skills? Well, we need you on board! Or, perhaps you know someone looking for a new challenge? Contact me for details!

Stay in touch here in our forums and on our open Slack channels.

Enonic Releases

No new releases last week, but this week we are going to release version 6.14.3 which fixes an issue with caching of the admin tools list in the Launcher panel.

We’re also hard at work on 6.15 which will land before the summer. It will, in addition to smaller improvements, contain long awaited features like support of wildcards in content type filter, new input type Media selector, major improvements in mixins implementation and - finally - a first version of integration with CKEditor which you’ll be able to switch to via a simple setting in the config file. There’s too much to describe, so just stay tuned for future updates.

Keep reporting bugs here in the forum and on our Github page for XP.

Enonic Market

Enonic Market had these updates last week:

  • Appersist - A library to make it simpler to create your own node repositories that you can use in your app. Just use the command appersist.repository.getConnection() which will return a RepoConnection. Use .create({}) to create nodes inside this repo.

  • PWA Starter - Our PWA Starter has just gotten a bit better - now it can send and receive push notifications! Not only that, but it also keeps track of the number of subscribers in real-time. Try it out, it’s a powerful feature with a very simple implementation, thanks to lib-notifications which the Starter is using under the hood.
