It was great meeting everyone at EuroPython! Next up: PyCon UK in Cardiff. Join us there, where we’ll be showing everyone how to build full-stack web apps with nothing but Python!
Meanwhile, here’s what’s new this month:
1. Single Sign-On with Microsoft
Does your organisation use Office 365? Now your users can log into your apps with their Microsoft accounts! Microsoft login (or, to give it its official name, Azure Active Directory) is available for all our Business plan customers.
2. Building Email-Driven Apps with Anvil
We’ve already made it easy to build web-based apps. Now it’s just as easy to send and receive email from your code, with our new Email Service.
3. New Documentation Search
We’ve made it easier than ever to search the Anvil documentation. Next time you’re in the Anvil editor, check out the search box in the toolbar. You can search our tutorials, reference documentation, and selected posts from the Community Forum.
(Speaking of the Community Forum, we’d love to hear your feedback. Come join us there!)
4. Other updates
As always, we’re improving Anvil all the time. Here are a few highlights:
Validating user input just got a lot easier, with our new form validation library. Check it out!
We’ve introduced a new domain for your apps: Now, by default, your apps are available at
<something>.anvil.app. (Don’t worry, the old
<something>.anvilapp.netlinks still work!)
We had an idea for improving the saving mechanism, so if you’re on a flaky internet connection saving should feel instant.
