  • v2.0.2 Changes

    July 26, 2016
    • Library:

      • [m] Add withConsoleListener.js convenience initialiser, for the most common case in which we just want to attach a console listener:
      import { mainStory } from 'storyboard/lib/withConsoleListener';
   'That was fast!');
  • v2.0.1 Changes

    July 18, 2016
    • 📚 Minor documentation changes.
  • v2.0.0 Changes

    July 18, 2016

    💥 Breaking changes

    • 0️⃣ No listeners are installed by default. The default behaviour in v1 was to automatically install some listeners, depending on whether Storyboard ran on the server or the client and the development/production mode. This was very convenient out of the box, but made it harder to customize the configuration in certain setups. If you need the old default behaviour, use this (note that for conditionally bundling listeners we recommend sticking to require for the time being):

      import { addListener } from 'storyboard';
      // Server
      import consoleListener from 'storyboard/lib/listeners/console';
      // Client
      if (process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production') {
    • Listeners have been migrated to ES6. Notice above the different way to use them, depending on whether you import them (ES6 module) or require them (CommonJS):

      // ES6 module
      import fileListener from 'storyboard/lib/listeners/file';
      // CommonJS module
      const fileListener = require('storyboard/lib/listeners/file').default;
    • 🔊 The Console listener no longer uses stderr on Node, to avoid out-of-order logs (see this link for some background); it now uses stdout for all log levels. If you want the old behaviour, configure it with useStderr: true. On the browser, console.error() is used as before.

    Other changes

    • Add a command-line interface (CLI) tool to use Storyboard on unmodified applications/modules (i.e. without requiring the use of the library). This tool wraps the application and allows redirecting the logs to a file, the console and/or the web (using the WebSocket Server listener). In principle, this makes any application compatible with the Storyboard DevTools. More details here.
    • Library:
      • [M] Implement a refined listener architecture, affecting in particular the client side. These changes should be transparent to the user. The WsClient listener no longer interfaces directly with the browser extension, but rather relays its messages via the hub. The BrowserExtension listener has been merged with the interfaceExtension helper, since no other module can have access to this interface any more. This architecture is more flexible and will allow other uses of the library, e.g. using the WsClient listener in a non-browser application to obtain logs from another process and offload database access or file storage.
      • [M] WebSocket Server and Client can now estimate their clock differences, so that timestamps correspond to (approximately) the client's system clock. This functionality is disabled by default, but can be opted in by setting clockSync: true in the WebSocket Client configuration.
      • [M] Add Postgres database listener: stores logs to a PostgreSQL database, including attachments.
      • [M] Add file listener: stores all logs to a file, with or without ANSI color escapes (disabled by default).
      • [M] Better attachment serialization. undefined values will no longer disappear from your attachments when they traverse the WebSocket interface between the WsServer and WsClient plugins.
      • [m] Improve graceful exits, tearing down all listeners if possible. Previously, we only closed the main story.
    • 💻 Browser extension:
      • [m] Settings: show version.
      • Bugfix: Settings: Fix hysteresis tooltip.
    • Internal:
      • Ongoing migration from CoffeeScript to JS.
  • v1.4.0 Changes

    June 29, 2016
    • 💻 Browser extension:
      • [M] Improve behaviour when server restarts (always download the server's new records)
      • [m] Click on the warning icon in a story title to expand the story.
  • v1.3.1 Changes

    June 29, 2016
    • [m] Show buffers nicely within attachments.
    • 🛠 Bugfix: Correct serialization of exceptions.
    • 🛠 Bugfix: Fix an issue in the browser extension where an incorrect attachment would be open when clicked upon after a server reset.
  • v1.3.0 Changes

    June 09, 2016
    • 💻 Browser extension:
      • [m] Use Giu components for the UI
      • [m] Add some validation on the settings
      • [m] Simplify cxReducer state
      • [m] Fix panel charset (required for Redux devtools)
    • Lib:
      • [M] Attach objects in their original shape (not simplified), after removal of possible circular refs
      • [m] Add stdinLogger tool (result from issue #11): use it to log via Storyboard the output of any command, e.g. ls | node stdinLogger.js
      • [m] Fix incorrect filter config when user enters a blank string
  • v1.2.0 Changes

    April 19, 2019
    • 💻 Browser extension:
      • [M] Allow the user to configure the filters used by the server and local client
      • [M] Add warning icon to collapsed stories containing warnings/errors
      • [m] Allow the user to filter out client root stories from other clients
    • Lib:
      • [m] Internal: the Storyboard entry point now just re-exports the noPlugins API, enabling listeners as in the previous version (hence, non-breaking change)
  • v1.1.1 Changes

    April 12, 2019
    • Lib:
      • [M] Fix a regression concerning the client side of the server logs (standalone) app: plugins were not included in the minified/production version
  • v1.1.0 Changes

    April 12, 2019
    • Lib:
      • [M] Add remote log monitoring: logs can be uploaded by the WS Client listener, e.g. from mobile devices or non-Chrome browsers, and monitored from a remote Storyboard DevTools somewhere else.
      • [M] Split WS Client listener in two:
        • WS Client listener (dedicated just to WebSockets)
        • Browser Extension listener (relays client-side logs to the browser extension)
      • [M] Include a no-plugins version of Storyboard (at storyboard/lib/noPlugins), which might become default in future major releases. Using this version prevents from getting into your bundle, if you don't need it.
    • 💻 Browser extension:
      • [M] For servers requiring no auth for logs: Automatically retrieve server backlog upon startup
      • [m] Bumped React to v15.0.1
  • v1.0.0 Changes

    April 05, 2019
    • Enforce semver
    • Lib:
      • [m] Publish chalk as part of the top-level API: storyboard.chalk. This is for convenience, as well as to prevent duplicate instances of chalk in certain setups (should not happen anyway if you use npm@3 and include chalk@^1.0.0).
