This week we’ve been further refining the Builder including adding some useful documentation for developers. Changes this week:
Quick Build – A significant step forward for the Builder this week with the introduction of Quick Build; a simple way for people to rapidly build some of the most popular widgets in Sabisu like speedos, pie charts and line graphs. When creating a new widget, people will now get the option to select “Create Quick” which will present them with the following interface.
The $Now() function, used for pushing the .NET datestamp into other databases, has been updated to perform better with database engines such as MySQL.
The $FormatDate function has been added to allow you to set the format of the date you want to see.
The $DatePart function has been added to allow you to display only part of a date/time e.g. just the year.
A list of all the dollar functions can be found here.
Builder Documentation – A useful resource full of subcomponent documentation is now available here.
Fixed an issue where new pages that’d been shared with you required a browser refresh before they appeared in your workplace.
We’re working on a major refresh of the Builder’s user interface to make it even easier for you to build the things you need. Watch this space…
