Release 130 | Feb 7, 2022


Another monster release for the engineering team packed with features, tweaks, and bug fixes! This work was delayed for a few weeks while we tested the new JSX syntax for NoML. As a consequence more issues were rolled into this release because it includes work from the past three weeks.

Banner Features

Showing a variant featured image

Shopify allows users to associate a single image with each variant. In this release, we added functionality to the product component that selects the variant image when the appropriate options are selected. This will zip to an image of the shirt in red when the red color is selected.

Banner Components

A reoccurring feature request, we implemented a basic banner component. That might sound kind of silly, but to date, we didn’t have a good way to build a component that had smaller buttons and padding. It’s now trivial to add a banner to any page.

JSX-Style Components

We’ve reworked the syntax of NoML to align with React’s JSX syntax. This is one of the things we needed to push out to make it easier for us to iterate on components, allows us to render dynamic changes within the section editor, and is a syntax that is familiar to a lot of developers.

Custom Code with Text Component

This behaves a lot like the Media component, but instead of an image you can add custom code. This will make it much easier to add custom embeds (for example a map) with text on the left or right.

Complete List of Resolved Items

  • Pushed several polish-updates for Conditional Content. 
  • Added support for variant-specific featured images. Now when a variant is specified, the images used in the product component should pull from that variant. 
  • New component: "Banner"
  • New component: "Custom Code/Text"
  • Pushed a change to the timing of account creation from Shopify.
