Welcome in the new era of Generators! In this Wappler update we will give you a sneak preview of new global UI options available in the Database Manager that will feed many new upcoming code and UI generators!
We have added support now also for JSON fields in the Database Manager, letting you define arbitrary schema or arrays under single JSON fields. So now you can have rich structures and also handle multiple values in arrays much more easier out of the box!
A great use case for this is storing multiple values of checkboxes, see PREVIEW: Using JSON Database Fields to Store Multiple Choices
In the Database Manager now you can preview the table data directly in a tab editor! Just make sure you enable the experimental options first.
Also another great and frequently requested feature is generating unique identifiers in Server Connect. So not a new UUID global variable is available just for you. See Generating an unique UUID identifier 16
