Wappler 1.5.2 Released

What’s New

This week we have two major improvements! A totally redesigned Insert Elements panel and an awesome smart partial synchronization between code and design view - for a huge productivity speed boost! So both designers and coders should be greatly pleased! The era of Visual coding has began!

Design View

  • Totally Redesigned and optimized Insert Elements panel.

    • elements categories are now much more clean on the left side.
    • smart suggestions depending on your context, offered as first choice.
    • elements already filtered based on used frameworks and context.
    • search is now much more smarter as you can enter multiple keywords separated by space.
    • search filters also on categories.
    • next to search there is also frameworks toggles.
    • each element has a tag indicating the framework it comes from.
  • Add frameworks now only available on the App Structure toolbar.

  • Greatly improved Bootstrap 4 forms category menu - now suggesting the Bootstrap 4 groups as first choice.

  • Reorganized the components Browser, Charts, Google Maps & Directions, Masonry, Notifications, Scheduler, Slideshow, Video, Alerts, Modals and Moment to be under the “Components” category.

  • New shortcut keys in Design View for easy elements selection.

    • CTRL-D / CMD-D: duplicate
    • Left: Select parent element
    • Right: Select first child element
    • Up / Down: Select prev/next sibling element
    • Escape: deselects
    • Delete / Backspace: delete element

Code View / Split View

  • Improved Undo/Redo - also with smart partial syncing.

  • Improved selection of an element in code view when selected from design view or App Structure.

  • Improved theming colors of the active selection.

  • Fixed esc key not working correctly in Code View

    • CTRL-F2 / CMD-F2 - toggle Book
    • F2 - Next bookmark
    • SHIFT-F2 - Previous bookmark
    • CTRL-SHIFT-F2 / CMD-SHIFT-F2 - Clear all bookmarks

Few things in life are as superlative as the weekly updates to Wappler. Very impressed with this week’s updates. It is amazing how much Wappler has improved in the past 6 months. And to think - I thought Wappler was a godsend before all the updates. :slight_smile:


Wappler team add features to Wappler . faster than Adobe deleting them from Dreamweaver :rofl::v:

I love the way you’ve implemented the select parent/child command! This greatly improves the workflow since no switching to appstructure is required now.


Me too!
Just another wish, since I work mainly in code: Ctrl+D / CMD+D to duplicate code selection.
