Today is a new major step for Strapi: this is the official release of Strapi firstname.lastname@example.org!
What’s new in alpha.6? 🚀
A lot of work has been achieved over the last few weeks.
Filters: List of generic operators allowing filtering, sorting and pagination (eg. GET /user?_sort=email&_start=10&_limit=10). These filters are usable from any generated API.
Reduce number of steps to be able to contribute: The admin panel development workflow has been drastically simplified in order to make contributions and plugins development easier.
Reduce bundle size by sharing commons dependencies: As you may know, the admin panel is a React application that embed plugins as sub-components. Thanks to a Webpack optimisation, the admin panel build is much more lightweight than before.
Update strapi-helper-plugin and strapi-admin dependencies: Every admin panel and plugins dependencies have been updated to their latest versions.
The React licence switch (from BSD+Patents to MIT) is a very reassuring news for Strapi.
Content Type Builder: The equivalent of the Studio API Builder has been adapted to v3 and completely open-sourced. This is a huge step for the project!
Define the data structure of your API, create relations and generate code according to your needs within a few clicks.
Content Manager: Equivalent of the open-source admin panel in v1.
Auto-generated content interface. Discover, create and edit the data managed by your API.
