Multi Language Support ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

This release introduce multi language support in the Livingdocs core. A more detailed description about the setup and the feature can be found in the documentation.

The activation of the feature requires a re-index of Elasticsearch (including the new mapping): grunt search-index:document:reset

server PR #1881 / editor PR #1929

Configurable search filter for empty queries on the dashboard ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

This change brings a new option named emptySearchQueries for filters (e.g. articleList). emptySearchQueries specifies the filter & sorting rules when the search field is empty.

Required Actions

To get the previous search behaviour back of the last version, you have to provide -updated_at in the editor emptySearchQueries option (compare defaultQueries and emptySearchQueries):

filters: {
  articleList: {
    displayFilters: ['channels', 'contentType', 'timeRange'],
    defaultQueries: [
      {type: 'documentType', value: 'article'},
      {type: 'sortBy', value: 'relevance'}
    emptySearchQueries: [
      {type: 'documentType', value: 'article'},
      {type: 'sortBy', value: '-updated_at'}

This tells the editor to provide sortBy -> -updated_at in case there is no search query input available.

For a more detailed description have a look at the documentation, the server PR #1885 and the editor PR #1939

Project toggle support (alpha) ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

A user can now switch between 2 or more projects in the Editor. This feature is in alpha state and can only be activated with manually assigning a user to another project via the database.



  • Editor API
    • The GET /projects/:id endpoint now uses properties that are in camelCase. That shouldn’t have any affect in the editor as we transform everything anyways.
    • GET /projects now returns the projects of a specific user. An admin can’t call that endpoint to retrieve all the projects anymore.
  • Public API
    • no breaking changes
  • Core API
    • project.default_channel_id has been renamed to project.defaultChannelId
    • project.config.import_user has been renamed to project.importUserId
