New API for channel configurations πŸ”₯ 🎁

Added li-channel-configs feature.

The feature is disabled by default. To activate it add the following config:

  channelConfigs: {
    enabled: true

Breaking change:

// the return value `renderConfig` has changed:
channelApi.getRenderConfig({channelId, contentType}, (err, renderConfig) => {})
  • property rename: renderConfig.renditionsConfig -> renderConfig.renditions

  • property added: renderConfig.path // absolute path to the render config. Can be required.

  • new methods: renderConfig.isEmpty() and renderConfig.getAvailableRenditions()

Also requiring the render config is now delayed. Previously we would require the path which points to the render config file when initialising the projects feature. Now it is required at runtime whenever it is used. This means we do not update the loaded config anymore and it remains serialisable.

server #1875

Extend responses for the seed API πŸ”₯ 🎁

Breaking change: The “seedDocuments” method does no longer just return an array of document versions, but an object with:

type SeedDocumentsRes = {
  documents: DocumentVersion[],
  documentsBySeedId: { [seedDocumentId:number]: DocumentEntity }
const {documents: documentVersions, documentsBySeedId}: SeedDocumentsRes = await seedApi.seedDocuments(params, seedDocumentsData)

This information turned out to be very useful and should be included in the return values.

server #1921

Replace angular-ui-router with @uirouter/angularjs πŸ”₯ πŸ”§

Breaking change:

editor #1842

Disable backwards-compatibility feature for component bindings. πŸ”₯ πŸ”§

Breaking change: Check if your (downstream) editor creates directives/components e.g. app.component/app.directive and check/move bindings from the controller constructor to $onInit. More details you can find in the migration guide
