Scrivito JS SDK 1.23.0 Released – Featuring a Refined Page History

Tracing the publishing history of pages

Based on the feedback of our users, we have adjusted how the page history works. It now lets you view the changes made to the selected published version compared to the preceding version. This way, you can see what has been changed with each individual publish. Previously, the selected version could only be compared with the currently published content.

We highly appreciate your feedback – thank you!

Server-side access to content via Node.js

You can now also access Scrivito content on a server, e.g. for prerendering or for generating a sitemap. To this end, the Scrivito SDK now supports Node.js, the most popular JavaScript runtime for backends. See Using Scrivito with Node.js for details and examples.

RunKit + npm: scrivito

Creating sites made comfortable

Creating sites has become more comfortable due to the dedicated dialog Scrivito now includes for this. It lets you provide the relevant details, i.e. the site’s name, homepage type, and language, in a single step instead of having to open the page properties to fill in this data.

Updating resources using the Content Browser preserves their name

Part of the editorial work with Scrivito is to update images or resources of any other kind once in while because they have become outdated over time. To streamline this process of replacing resources, Scrivito no longer changes their respective name to the one of the uploaded file, assuming that the resource has already been named properly. No more renaming only to keep the existing name!

Further improvements

  • Improved user interface performance

    The performance of the editing interface has been significantly improved. For example, with many top-level pages, submenus now open without any delay.

  • Rearranged sidebar buttons

    The sidebar buttons have been slightly rearranged so as to reflect their scope of application: page, working copy, and overall functionality.

  • Improved handling of pages without a type

    Scrivito now lets editors copy or move a page only if its underlying type is present. This prevents the page from becoming dysfunctional.
