Who uses Directual and why?
What can be built on the platform?
Directual web-page builder now includes Table view for your data. Table view works as cards, when you click a row. It means, you can set up an object view, define which fields are available for reading, and which ones — for writing. Also, you can set up actions for the object itself and objects, linked with it. Setting up the Table, you can define which fields are included to the view, the columns order, and set up some columns as pictures or buttons.
Often, there is a need to emphasise some differences between objects visually. The best way to do that is to use different colours. For instance, if your Cards list contains features and bugs, you may set bugs as red cards, and features as green ones. The colouring option depends on the object field, where you store the code of the color (e.g. red colour has #ff0000 code). That means, that you can set up the colours from scenarios, with absolute flexibility! There are several visual options of colouring: stripe on the left side, card border or the whole fill.
If you add a field type of date, you can define its formatting settings. Any part of the platform or an app will take into account those settings for the field. You can set up the following things: locale, date/time format, time constraints, weekday constraints, and default time zone.
The HTTP-request step has been rebuild. Now you can easily add URL params, Headers, compose different types of body content, use such advanced settings as a retry option or choosing timeouts.
P. S. In the nearest days we are going to introduce open development pipeline to let you see the future platform features, report bugs, suggest ideas and upvote the features you need most.
The Table component is a new feature in Directual's web-page builder that allows you to create a table view for your data. This means you can customize which fields are available for reading and writing. You can even set up actions for the object itself and objects linked with it.
Cards coloring is a feature that allows you to visually differentiate between objects using different colors. By using different colors for different objects, you can make it easy to distinguish between bugs and features, for example. You can set up the colors from scenarios with absolute flexibility, and choose from several visual options like a stripe on the left side or the entire card fill.
You can customize the formatting settings for date fields, such as locale, date/time format, time constraints, weekday constraints, and default time zone. And here's the best part - any part of the platform or app will take those settings into account for the field.
You can now easily add URL params, headers, and compose different types of body content. Plus, there are some advanced settings like retry options and choosing timeouts. It's easier than ever to make HTTP requests and get the results you need.
