Directual web-pages builder supports subpages (second level, third, etc., no limits). That feature is great when you deal with a list of objects and each object should have a sophisticated view (e.g. with forms or tables on it). Now you can arrange a Cards component, or a Table and pick “open object on a subpage”.
The new component Link button allows you to navigate between pages and subpages. You can simply “go back” or “go to next object”, where the ID of the next object is taken from your API-endpoint.
Just have a look at how it works in this new app from the showcase.

HTML and Markdown components become really powerful as soon as you can leverage displaying real data in them. You can connect an endpoint and configure HTML or Markdown enriched with your real data. Moreover, you can use advanced features of the Directual templating engine like dealing with arrays of objects or conditional content rendering.
Form component has always been a powerful tool for data collecting. Now you can apply it for displaying the data — add the fields available for reading only. That is an essential feature for using Forms on subpages!
Have a look at the read-only Form here.

You may pick the colouring scheme for your app from the default list, or set it up as you like. Moreover, the colouring scheme may be exported or imported as a JSON-data.
You can now place your main menu on the top or on the left side of the app. Find that setting in portal settings.

You may choose one of the six languages for your Directual-based app:
