What's new in VIKTOR (March 2022)
The time has come for March's update. So, what is new in the VIKTOR platform? It has been another month and we have been working on many new functionalities that we like to share with you! For example, the updated Apps Gallery, new custom map markers, a workspace udpate for admins, and the views only editor. Make sure to continue reading for more information on all these topics. 
How to create successful application that ensure adoption
Build successful applications

Learn the process to build apps that provide real value to your work and that other people will definitely want to use as well.

Apps Gallery

You might have already noticed it, but we have added an Apps Gallery to the documentation! In the Apps Gallery, you can find a collection of sample apps that you can download directly from our GitHub repository and use as inspiration to create other awesome applications yourself!

Keep an eye out on the gallery, as we will continuously add more sample apps.

Visit the new Apps Gallery to discover all the applications and get inspired!

More map markers added to library

To make it easier to distinguish between different types of data on a map (MapPoints), and make the MapView more informative and easier to understand for end-users, we have added a library of map point markers. From now on, you can use different markers to depict distinct locations or data types on the map. For example, the VIKTOR logo to indicate the location of the VIKTOR office.

Visit the documentation to see how you can implement new map point markers as well.

More control for workspace admins

We have implemented a new functionality that allows admin users to modify their workspaces by updating information such as names, descriptions, images, and user access. This helps admins better indicate what a workspace is used for and potentially increases usage and adoption as well!

Admins can update their workspace through the setting dots in the workspace card. Visit your Workspaces to discover all possibilities.

Create editors with only a View

From now on, it is possible to create an editor that only shows a View, in case you don’t want to show a parametrization. This means that, whenever no parameterization is specified in the controller, there will no longer be an empty input panel and only the views will be shown, which makes the interface look a lot cleaner!  

You can create a views-only entity type by omitting the parametrization attribute on the corresponding controller class. 

Visit the documentation to find out more about the views only editor.

Coming soon...

V13

We have exciting news: we will launch SDK v13 in April! Here we have a sneak preview into some features you will soon be able to use to create awesome apps: 

Generic entity field: You can add this field to your parametrization to enable end-users to select any entity, from any part of the entity tree. 

FileField: This field enables users to upload several files directly to the editor, so there is no longer a need for a nested entity structure when using files. 

Persistent storage: Apps can use their storage to store data, invisible to the end-user. This enables you to store sensitive information that is needed internally for calculations and can easily be retrieved in subsequent calculations as well. This makes it possible to store reusable data to optimize your app, while at the same time keeping your user-facing params clean.



Other Changes
