Structr 2.2 released

2017 has been a fantastic year so far. We've put a lot of work into improving Structr, and the product has made huge progress in many areas. We added schema-based import wizards for CSV and XML, we improved the overall performance, and we added and fixed lots of tiny things to make your Structr experience even better. Just after GraphConnect New York, we're thrilled to announce the 2.2 release of Structr, full of improvements and new features. It's an important step towards our upcoming…

Cutting deployment times by up to 95%

Since we introduced deployment exports/imports in Structr 2.1 (see https://support.structr.com/article/428) our productivity increased steadily. Being able to quickly spin up a completely emtpy Structr instance and deploying an existing application without the user data proved to be a very convenient and fast way to test/develop new features. Not to speak of the other benefits like version control, making it easier to work with multiple developers and so on...

New Release Strategy: Continuous Delivery

Starting with version 2.1.0, we have switched our release life cycle from one major release every couple of months to a continuous delivery model based on the current `master` branch on GitHub. We will continue to build SNAPSHOT versions inbetween the releases, but you can expect the new releases to come out much more frequently (we're currently at 2.1.2). You can find the current release as well as the most recent SNAPSHOT version on .

Simplified file upload

Next in line on the list of new features in the upcoming 2.1 release is a small update that allows you to use the standard HTML file upload form to upload files into an application built with Structr. Until now, that was a rather complicated process, because the upload handling had to be done using JavaScript. With this simple change, you can now use the below pure HTML form to upload a file to a folder of your choice, and set properties on the file. <form action="/structr/upload"…

Scheduled Schema Methods in Structr

I recently pushed a small change to the master branch of Structr that allows you to configure the periodic execution of StructrScript / server-side JavaScript methods in structr.conf. CronService In case you didn't know, Structr has a built-in scheduling service that can execute periodic tasks. It is configurable with a syntax very similar to the one of the UNIX crontab file, hence the name CronService. Example With this change, the CronService gains the ability to execute scripts stored in a…

Automatic Resource Minification with Structr

Structr just got another useful, some would argue essential, web development feature: Minification. If you want to minify the resources for your web app to optimize performance you dont need to do this manually anymore. Structr supports minification of CSS and JavaScript resources. For this you can create files of type MinifiedCssFile or MinifiedJavaScriptFile respectively. In the properties dialogue of those files other files can be selected which should be included in the minified…
