Scrivito JS 1.16.0 Released – Featuring React Hooks Support

Scrivito now supports React hooks

Scrivito application developers can now use hooks in components for widgets, pages and other elements for displaying CMS content. For this, Scrivito.provideComponent, Scrivito.registerComponent and Scrivito.connect now support functional components that make use of React hooks, meaning that state and other React features are available without having to provide a class. For more information, see the React documentation about hooks.

In order to support React hooks, Scrivito now requires React 16.8 or later.

Visual editing of HTML properties

If you need an alternative to editing text in place, editing HTML markup in properties views has become more comfortable and self-explanatory. Editors can now edit HTML-based properties in a visual, rich-text manner, taking full advantage of the configurable toolbar buttons. Power users can still edit the source markup using the “HTML” tab.

Who has published this content?

For more transparency concerning the editorial cycle, in addition to the information about when and by whom a page was created and last changed, Scrivito now also lets editors determine by whom and when a page was first and last published.

Customizable page initialization

There are situations in which content needs to be initialized immediately after it has been created. For example, when creating a child page, pre-setting some of its attributes according to its path, language, etc. may be required. To this end, Scrivito now supports defining a callback for every page class and, if provided, executes it immediately after an instance of this class has been created. See the API documentation for further details.

Bugfixes

  • When navigating using a link that includes a hash mark, the SDK no longer interferes with the page scroll behaviour provided by libraries such as scroll-to-fragment.
