What’s New

This Wappler update is mostly a maintenance update containing many fixes reported in our community.
A welcome additions are also Redis support in the Resource Manager, so you can use a single Redis server for all your local development but also share cloud redis servers in multiple projects.
See Installing and Using a Single Redis Instance for Multiple Projects

Furthermore we have fine tuned our NodeJS docker deployment to no longer use Nodemon on live servers, as it is really only meant for development environments.

Also the Schema Refresh in the Database Manager has now been improved with more options for just list refresh or really full schema refresh as the last one can take longer time.

This is the last stable version of Wappler 5. There won’t be any updates unless very urgent issues arise.
We will be working now on Wappler 6 and we hope to bring you the first public beta in a few weeks, so you can try it out before the final release.

Resource Manager

  • Added new Redis service that can be installed as local development service or as shared service on cloud server
  • Improved docker services cleanup to now fully clean also named volumes on service removal
  • Allow to select Redis from predefined Cloud Databases, local or on remote servers.
  • Choose also for redis which database number to use, useful when sharing Redis with multiple projects. Those Redis databases are created on the fly, so you don’t have to create them ahead of time, just select which one to use.
  • Improved server ip reuse check

Docker Targets

  • Fix Redis to use the same network as the web service
  • Do not use nodemon on live docker targets any more. It is not needed as docker is pretty much self contained and also the container restarts on crash
  • Make sure nodeJS config folder exists before creating new configuration for Redis for example
  • Support for running Redis from Managed Databases like Digital Ocean with username and password

Database Manager

  • Changed the Refresh Schema option to Refresh List on database and tables and view nodes, and add a second option if to do a Full Schema refresh if you really want to update all tables, views and their fields.

Project Options

  • Disallow switching from Development Environment “Own Server” to “Wappler Local Server” in General Project options as existing Own Server node_modules will conflict with the Wappler build-in

Project Extensions

  • Alert the user to switch to “Own Server” development environment first when he/she wants to add extensions, as it is required.
  • Fix listing of previous project extensions on project switch


  • When remote docker target is selected and regular terminal opened, use the docker context of the remote target to be able to execute custom docker commands


  • Fixed: Server Connect over sockets didn’t work with Redis enabled
  • Added events listeners to Redis client (client will crash on error when no error event listener is attached)
  • Caching of serverconnect responses over sockets was using old Redis api
  • Socket Refresh action updated

Database Connector

  • In PHP Sort on alias column wasn’t working when joins where used

App Connect 2.0 Beta 7
