Direct2D rendering

Post by Pablo » Mon Jun 10, 2019 2:57 pm

Direct2D rendering
The graphics engine for workspace rendering has been completely redesigned using hardware acceleration (direct 2d), for better performance and higher quality graphics during design time. This means rendering should be much faster and the graphics will be sharper even when zooming in/out.

Shape Dividers

Post by Pablo » Mon Jun 10, 2019 3:01 pm

Shape Dividers
Last year, we released the experimental ‘divider’ template, which turned out to be the most downloaded template to date. So, this year we decided to make it a standard feature! The new shape divider option is available for layers, layout grids and flex box containers. Shape dividers are SVG based shapes that can be used to separate the sections of a page.
There are more than 30 shapes you can choose from, but you can also add custom shape SVG files. Shapes dividers can be added at the top or bottom (or both) of a layer.
The color specifies the color of the shape. The width specifies the width in percentages, this can be useful if you only want to display a smaller part of the shape, for example 200%, clips the left and right part of the shape. The height is in pixels. Shapes can be flipped horizontally/vertically. This makes it possible to use shapes that were designed to be used at the top, also at the bottom (flip vertically). The arrangement property controls whether the shape will be displayed underneath the content or on top of content.

Preloader

Post by Pablo » Mon Jun 10, 2019 3:10 pm

Preloader
Added the ability to add an animated preloader image to the page (in Page Properties). A preloader (also known as loading screen) is what you see on some sites before the main content of the web page is loaded.

Image

Image

Image

Preloaders are simple (GIF) animations that are used to keep visitors entertained while server operations finish processing.
WYSIWYG Web Builder can display a (semitransparent) overlay with animated gif when the website loading is in progress. It will disappear right after the page loads.

Demo:

SVG Path Animation

Post by Pablo » Mon Jun 10, 2019 9:06 pm

SVG Path Animation
This adds the ability to animate the border (stroke) of SVG shapes, textart, clipart and makes it look like the shape/text is drawn on the web page in real-time;)
For complex shapes (with sub paths), it is possible to delay the rendering of sub paths for even cooler effects.

Toasts

Toasts
Toasts are lightweight notifications designed to mimic the push notifications that have been popularized by mobile and desktop operating systems. They can be displayed at page load or with delay. Multiple Toasts will automatically stack vertically.

Wrap Text

Post by Pablo » Tue Jun 11, 2019 11:24 am

Wrap Text
Added support for floating layout, so the 'Wrap Text' can also be used inside a layout grid. This makes it possible to wrap text around images or other objects. Child elements can either float left or right.

Image

Also, added experimental support for CSS's shape-outside. This will wrap the text around the outline of a (transparent) image or shape, making it possible to wrap text around complex objects rather than simple rectangular boxes. Note that this will only work in modern browsers (Safari, Chrome, FireFox, not in IE or Edge!)

SEO

Post by Pablo » Tue Jun 11, 2019 3:07 pm

SEO
Search Engine Optimization settings now have a dedicated section in the page properties.

Added 'Canonical URL' property. If you have different pages with similar content (for example, a page with both a mobile and a desktop version), Google sees these as duplicate versions of the same page. Google will choose one URL as the canonical version and crawl that, and all other URLs will be considered duplicate URLs and crawled less often.
More information: https://support.google.com/webmasters/a ... 9066?hl=en

Added 'hreflang' configuration. The hreflang attribute tells Google which language you are using on a specific page, so the search engine can serve that result to users searching in that language. The links will also be added to the site map.

Theme Colors

Post by Pablo » Tue Jun 11, 2019 3:14 pm

Theme Colors
With the 'Theme color' option (inspired by the MS Office color picker) you can configure a custom color palette of 12 colors. The light and dark variants of these colors will be generated automatically, just like in Ms Office products.
It will also be possible to synchronize the colors in pages when they are modified or when you select a different color theme.
