WeWeb Authentication, Fixing CORS Issues ⛔️, and Calendly Embed 📆

Hello there 👋

How've you been? 🙂

In the past couple of weeks, we released the WeWeb authentication and added the option to make server-side requests with the REST API plugin 🚀

In addition, we made some frequently asked additions like:

  • develop a Calendly integration,
  • add a "Change language" Action to Workflows,
  • make it possible to bind images to the Carousel element,
  • allow users to bind the page in the "Change Page" Action of Workflows, and
  • add the "Open in a New Tab" option in the "Change Page" Action of Workflows.

⛔️ Fixing CORS Issues

Some REST APIs, like Google Maps, accept client-side requests, i.e. requests from your users browsers.

But many REST APIs, like Twitter, only accept server-side requests.

By default, being a frontend builder, WeWeb's REST API plugin makes client-side requests.

Now, we've added the possibility for you to make server-side requests:

In the example above, you can see Twitter's API returns a Network error when we use the default configuration of the REST API plugin.

However, once we enable the "Make this request through a server" option, it returns the result we were looking for.

🔐 WeWeb Auth

Before, you could add the following authentication systems to your WeWeb apps:

Now, you can setup WeWeb's native authentication system in just a few clicks:

  • Step 1: add the WeWeb Auth plugin
  • Step 2: tell the plugin which page unauthenticated users should be redirected to

With the WeWeb Auth plugin, you can manage users, user roles, and user groups directly in WeWeb.

📆 Calendly Plugin

The team released a new native integration with Calendly. You can add it to your project from the "Plugins" > "Extensions" menu:

Once you've added the Calendly extension, you will be able to:

  • access the Calendly Embed Form in the "Add" menu,
  • drag and drop it onto a page, and
  • paste a link to a Calendly calendar or a specific meeting to display it on the page.

Other Recent Improvements

  • New "Change language" Action in Workflows
  • Added min-width and max-height properties on all relevant elements
  • You can now bind a list of images to the Carousel Element
  • Enabled binding the page in "Change Page" Action in Workflows
  • Added "Open in a New Tab" option in "Change Page" Action in Workflows

🪲 Fixed Bugs

  • Fixed SQL plugin query with return lines
  • Fixed bug on filters that didn't work with certain types of Airtable fields
  • Fixed performance issues related to the creation of a variable triggering all computed

Ok then, that's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed it!
