beta.98 - Previews 👀, Docs, devTools, updater improvements
Creating the previews feature was a huge undertaking, but it really paid off. You can now render html into a side pane by simply providing a
preview function. A preview can be a simple string all the way to an async function per choice that loads data based on the currently selected choice. For examples, see here #555
You can toggle previews on/off with cmd+p
Along with previews comes the built-in docs.
- Docs are built from the GitHub discussions docs category
- Each time I post/update a doc, a webhook builds the docs into a json file, Kit.app checks for a new docs.json once a day (or you can manually update them from the
Help->Download Latest Docs
- You can click an example to install it! 🎉
- I'll keep working on docs and examples. Please ask any questions over in the docs section if you'd like to see something clarified.
Pass any data into
devTools to pop open a Dev Tools pane so you can interact with the data.
devTools will first log out the data, but it's also assigned to an
x variable you can interact with in the console.
devToolswill be another paid feature once Script Kit 1.0 releases
A few users reported a strange behavior with the updater. If you've had any issues with it, please download a fresh copy of Kit.app from https://scriptkit.com and overwrite the old version. There are many more guards around the updating logic to prevent those issues from cropping up again.
