What’s New

Another new major feature has just landed in Wappler - the Publish Manager! Now you can publish your project with a single click to your any remote target, applying automatically database changes and even commit and version to git! See Using the Publish Manager

Furthermore we have also improved the Postgres Database Connections in NodeJS to allow you to specify other default schemas than public, for even more flexible solutions.

Also the terminals to docker services are improved now to be more optimized and faster with the latest Docker releases

New Publish Manager

  • Now you can choose to publish your site with a single action! This will not only upload and deploy your files but also apply database changes and commit to git if used.
  • The new “Publish” command in the bottom toolbar opens a nice dialog with all the publishing options you need
  • Select to which target you want to publish
  • Select which databases you would like to automatically apply changes to
  • Select if you would like to commit to git and apply version and message, and select which files to commit or not
  • If using docker you can also select to clean up old docker images
  • Automatically increase the publish version based on the previous one
  • When committing to git make sure project version and commit message are entered, so require them
  • Implemented publishing for Google FireBase, Heroku and regular FTP based projects
  • Improve git handling with brand new repositories
  • Check to commit to git only when there are files to commit
  • Show the delete remote files option only on ftp projects
  • Implement the delete remote files option
  • Always ignore the remote user assets folder when publishing with ftp, so it isn’t cleared
  • Show output pane automatically when publishing with ftp
  • Display database updates failure if it happens at the end of the project publishing

Docker Manager

  • Improved docker terminal connections to web server and database server to use better connection method with connection reuse (Hijacking) of docker
  • For older docker machine based instances use the old connection method for the terminals

Database Connector

  • Added new database connection option “Search Path” for Postgres in NodeJS, to allow you to specify one or more default database schemas, if you are not using public only. Note if you are also using public make sure to add it to the list as well. It is a comma separated list
  • Improved the database connections Pool options for NodeJS

App Connect

  • Allow repeat to be added as dynamic attribute on any node

Server Connect

  • Improved input variable rename to set directly the right name so consequential automatic adding from for example Database Updater go well


  • Improved handling of variables with global names
  • Improved Parallel group

Bootstrap 4 & 5

  • Added the repeat children to much more bootstrap components
