โœจ Enhancementโ€‹

  • Page code error handling enhanced (Gatsby #108 | Next.js #116)

    Instead of always responding with a 500 status code, nonexistent Product Details Pages (PDPs) can now handle 404 errors.

  • External and client-side navigation now supported by the Link component ( Gatsby #103 | Next.js #117)

    The Link component now handles both external and client-side navigation. This change intends to unify the Link component usage.

  • SVG logo replaced by a static asset (Gatsby #116 | Next.js #135)

    The SVG logo was removed from the JavaScript code and imported as a static asset. This change aims to reduce the amount of JavaScript downloaded on the client-side since directly declaring SVGs in JS code can harm the Total Blocking Time (TBT) and final bundle sizes.

๐Ÿ“„ Documentationโ€‹

  • New Regionalization section on the Storybook (Gatsby #124 | Next.js #110)

    The Base Store Storybook now has the Regionalization section that lists all regionalization-related components and how to use them.

    The Sandbox tab is now available for all component pages, allowing to test the component in different viewports and use other add-ons. Also, some console errors on the Storybook were fixed.
