What's new in VIKTOR (August 2022)

VIKTOR

by VIKTOR

For August's platform update, we have been working on support for running and publishing apps on Python 3.8, 3.9, and 3.10, easier unit testing by using mocks for views, file uploads, workers, and more, and an improved search bar for the documentation!

Run apps on new versions of Python!

It is now possible to run your published apps on Python versions 3.8, 3.9, and 3.10. Use the config file to specify your preferred Python version to benefit from all the improvements in functionality and performance that these versions offer!

Visit the community topic if you have any questions about this feature.

Easier unit testing for views, file uploads, workers, and more

Testing your code has never been easier! We have added decorators that you can use to mock views, file uploads, workers, and more in VIKTOR - no more need to write these mocks yourself.

More information about mocking can be found in the documentation.

Improved search functionality in the docs

In the developer survey, many of you told us you would like to see the search functionality improved in the documentation. So, we started working on it! The new search bar is now up and running. In the meantime, we will continue to improve the documentation further.

Please visit the documentation to check out the new search bar and let us know what you think of it in the community forum!

Coming soon...

Self-servicing of VIKTOR development accounts

Soon, admins will be able to assign developer rights and create a development workspace for new users when adding them to an environment. Existing users can also be given developer rights by going to users > edit user and ticking the 'developer' box!
