What’s New

Speed is Wappler’s middle name, so that is why we have optimized our editor loading to deliver a huge speed boost! Now when opening pages to edit, those display almost instantly together with the App Structure panel.

So working on multiple pages and intensive project switching should all fly now!
Furthermore the last selection and scroll positions are also restored on open of the pages in your tab editors and App Structure.

We have also extended our Resource Manager to give you full access of security SSH Keys and managing those with SSH Agent - the key manager delivered with your OS.
So now on project open Wappler automatically loads any used SSH Keys in your project in the SSG Agent - ready for use. The SSH Agent is specially useful if you have multiple SSH Keys and also some of them maybe are secured with a passphrase. Now you are securely prompted one time for the passphrase which can be saved in your system keychain, so you don’t need to enter it again.

Note if you are on Windows, and want to use SSH Agent, you will have to start it one time from the “SSH Agent” context menu in Resource Manager. It will be then enabled for future usage and will be started automatically on system start.

And last but not least huge amount of issues reported in our community has been fixed.

  • SSH Agent is required if you use multiple SSH Keys. On Mac it is always running but on Windows it has to be started one time.
  • When the agent is running all the used SSH keys on the different providers in the project will be auto added to it so they can be used automatically.
