Roadmap, Community and Updates

Roadmap

We're excited to finally launch our public roadmap page which can be found as part of this doc portal or by clicking here: https://docs.tadabase.io/categories/roadmap

 

Community 

We've also recently started a new community using the beloved Discourse as our platform. Come join us at community.tadabase.io. As we've been growing we decided to invest our time in rebuilding a community on a platform that is better than what we were previously using. We've already seen very interesting community interactions. While this is a place for community to interact with each other we plan on being active on it as well. 

This community is not intended for reporting bugs, rather getting assistance from other Tadabasers. For bugs or other issues, please continue to report those to support@tadabase.io

 

Updates

Similar to the Roadmap update above, we're looking to consolidate all our different services into a single portal so you can come to one place to see docs, roadmap and finally updates. We have therefore moved our updates from updates.tadabase.io to this same portal (which you're currently looking at). The updates.tadabase.io link will continue to work and route you here accordingly. 

Still to come - we will also be adding the developer portal as well as status pages into this one centralized platform. 

More Builder Updates

We've added many additional updates to the builder to address some lag issues with large apps. You will now see drastic improvements in the builder loading and working within components. 

Loading Screen

One of the most notable updates is the new loading screen which will show you the loading status.

Dynamic Page Loading

Page are now dynamically loaded when page is selected. 

We've also introduced many additional changes behind the scenes to ensure your app can easily scale as well as layed the foundation for page versioning, logging and shared builder. More on this coming soon.  

Custom icon and loading gif

You can now choose to customize or hide the loading gif entirely as well as use your own favicon.
