What’s New

Setting up a local development environment has never been easier with Wappler! No longer you need complex solutions like Docker, WAMP or MAMP! Wappler has anything you need!
Check the new Setting Up a Lightweight Dev Environment with NodeJS and SQLite

So we have tuned up the docker integration, to no longer require Docker Desktop, for local development.

Furthermore a lot of stability improvements have been implemented and we have upgraded to the latest Electron for the best speed and memory management.

And of course a lot of issues reported in our Wappler Community are solved now.

Docker Manager

  • Improved system check to no longer require Docker Desktop when using docker on remote targets only!
  • Docker Desktop is now only used if you have local docker development. For just using docker for publishing a more lightweight Docker Compose (CLI) is only needed and will be automatically installed.

  • Added new Docker machine to fix Digital ocean timeout problems when creating new servers
