Can you believe we are on the third edition of Release Notes? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐ŸŽ‚ That happened in the blink of an eye!

While August looked like the longest month of the year, the icing on the cake is our team news for these Release Notes, take a look at our edition's highlights:

  • ๐Ÿš€ Badge component - create badges on top of your products.

  • ๐Ÿ’ฅ Deprecated folders removed - Who doesn't like a tidy house?

Get your birthday hat, and shall we check this edition?

Features ๐Ÿš€โ€‹

  • Select Atom #876: We have added to Store UI the Select atom, which generates a select component, as you can see below. select-atom

    To check other options and see the code, go to Select Atom on Store UI.

  • Badge component #894: a badge component is a great alternative when you want to create a discount badge (or any highlighted property) and add them on top of your product.

    For example, a discount badge on top of some ProductSummary components:


    Explore more of this component in Store UI and the FastStore repo.

  • Icon Button #900: one more feature for your store is the Icon Button, which adds a Shopping cart icon to it.

    Take a look at the Store UI IconButton and also the repo.

  • Agnostic store sdk analytics #903: Anyone, including non-VTEX developers, can now use store-sdk to implement their analytics layer with the guarantee that it'll be fully integrated with Google Analytics 4.

Bug Fixes ๐Ÿ›โ€‹

  • Warnings and incremental builds - gatsby-plugin-graphql #889: While using gatsby-plugin-graphql, you could get warnings to prevent adding two different queries with the same name.

    With this fix it tracks the filename of the query and only warns when two queries of the same name in different files are created.

  • Spread routes support - gatsby-plugin-nginx #895: Before any page created was available at, and only at /:slug/. If the user entered in /:slug it will receive a 404. Now, we make the route /{StoreCollection.slug}/, for example, also respond at /:slug. Check more details in the Spread routes support PR.

  • Preventing stores from building - gatsby-plugin-cms#921: Stores no longer break the build when remote nodes are null.

Breaking Changes ๐Ÿ’ฅโ€‹

  • Deprecated folders #927: We are keeping "our house" tidy, and that's why we are removing all deprecated folders. From now on, the old state will be on the branch legacy.

    Also, it reduces the store-ui size to 10kb maximum.

Improvements โœ”๏ธโ€‹

  • Upgrade Gatsby #887: Upgrading gatsby on each store could lead to some errors on theme-store and plugin-performance. Now, the packages are fixed while upgrading gatsby.

  • Remove gatsby-config.js from theme-store #888: To use different styling systems on different stores, we have removed gatsby-config from theme-store, virtually making it a plugin.

  • Upgrade Storybook version #905: Upgrades are always welcome, especially when we are talking about bugs! To fix bugs in some storybook versions we have to upgrade the package version.

That's all, folks, for our Release Notes. It should be a cakewalk to keep up the good work!

Make sure to star the repo so you keep your eyes on our next Release Notes. See you next month ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿš€
