Release 145 | July 17, 2022


This was a huge release for us and broke (again!) the record for most number of shipped items in a release (previously held by Release 143). Highlights include improvements to Shopify product syncing, updated callouts components, and better handling of bad components in the editor. Also, a ton of bug fixes.

Better Shopify Sync

In this release, we’ve added support for Shopify webhooks which should remove the delay between making changes to products and sync. Webhooks allow Unstack to receive notifications from Shopify when products change and update the product immediately.

We also introduced an improvement to syncing media on the initial sync so that media will be synced as needed rather than delaying the initial sync. Importing media takes a lot of time, so doing this as needed should make the initial sync go faster.

Updated Callouts component

Following the changes we made to the media component in a previous release, the callouts component has also been updated to follow similar conventions. 

All in all 7 components have been combined into two callouts components: icons and images. The new components allow you to adjust the number of columns on desktop and have styles for Cards and 3D Cards. Image cropping and icon size are also adjustable.

Deprecating older components

With the recent work on the media and callouts components, we can now deprecate 11 components that are no longer needed. All of the functionality in these components is available in our new updated components.

Going forward any component that has been deprecated will have a "Deprecated" badge in the editor and they will not show up as components that you can add to pages. This will ensure that sites continue to operate as expected, while also ensuring that new users aren’t overwhelmed by too many versions of the same component.

Better error handling for bad components

We've made improvements to the instances where poorly-implemented components crash. Now you'll see error messages for individual components when they fail to render in the editor and you can now delete them if you want to start over. 

The aim here was to make it easier to identify and repair pages where components fail to render. Previously, the entire editor might crash when issues like these arose.
