Sneaky Anvil Updates

Now my Anvil Editor has as many open tabs as my Browser (One of them being Stackoverflow of course).

Copying and pasting components now maintains the layout if the components are within a container. Copying forms from one app to another is now Super Simple! Thank you.

Edit I Think this has been like this for some time… :thinking:

It wasn’t like that two months ago, when I tediously redefined the layout of a ton of forms and decided to make the DataGridJson custom component!

The log shows when uplink functions are registered, yay!

It is not as good as a dashboard that shows the current status of the app, but it’s better than nothing.

Not sure how long this has been there, but while working on resolving an unexpected “TimeoutError,” I just now learned of relaxed transactions for the first time.

Don’t know if it’s an Anvil thing or an Anvil Extras thing, but now you have the ability to discretely choose which version of Anvil Extras you want to use as a 3rd-party dependency – all the way from v0.11 to latest production!

The tab icons in the IDE now have colour on them even when they are not selected! Much easier to see what is what. This was something I have been meaning to make a request on but not got around to so Thank you! Small things amuse small minds :slight_smile:

Now you can create a new Folder in your assets in as well! This will definitely help.

anvil.server.disconnect() for Uplink programs. Thanks to @owen.campbell for mentioning it here:

It’s not in the main documentation, so folks are apt to miss it (I did!), but it is in the API documentation here:

I do not ever remember seeing this but there is a new Advanced section in the server docs and you can enforce a user logged in before running server functions.

No idea when they did it but the default Anvil alerts also support multiple nested alerts stacked on top of each other

It’s amazing how quickly some people notice these things. We literally deployed that yesterday, and the newsletter mentioning it is going out today!

I’m not sure that this is Sneaky or new or if I am just rather unobservant.

When you are adding imports statements the colouring of the text tells you whether is is valid / you have the right number of dots to get to the right level. So does the colour of the dots I think - white dots are invalid. All purple text is incorrect where as blue then purple is legit.

Still much easier to use autocomplete - which is not new but is amazing!
