WaveMaker 11.5.0 - Release date: 03 December 2023

WaveMaker has released version 11.5.0 with new features like Appium Support, Dockerfiles in a project, importing icon font family, and enhancements like Angular framework support for Prefab workspace, NG studio upgrade to version 15, changes in project shell web template and other bug fixes.

New Features

Dockerfiles in Project

Introduced Dockerfiles in the project to build and deploy applications. This helps the user to use an appropriate Dockerfile for a specific project which stores all the prerequisite versions that are needed for the application. To know more, see Build with Docker.

Docker Image for Local Web Preview - React Native

Introduced wm-rn-web-preview Docker image to allow users to generate the local web preview of the application. Docker image is pre-configured with essential libraries which lets the user update to the latest version of the development environment by pulling the latest docker image. This simplifies the process of building and running WaveMaker applications in the local environment. To know more, see Docker Image for local Web preview.

Appium Support - React Native

Appium is a popular mobile UI test automation framework, and it supports various programming languages to write test cases. In WaveMaker, the component generates a unique identifier that is based on the widget name and attaches it as a testId property on all React Native elements that it uses. To know more, see Appium Support.

note

This feature is supported as the beta version.

Importing Icon font family in Project - React Native

Introduced an option to import font family into a project allowing users to add a custom font family. To know more, see Custom Icon Fonts.
