Happy new year! Here is our first Baserow release of 2022! The key features are: the Gallery view which lets you view your data as cards with an optional cover image; Public view sharing allowing you to share grid views via a link; the Rating field giving you an easy way to store and set ratings; Interface translation to French; User file previews in your browser and finally there are some significant performance optimizations for large tables making tables with 100+ fields usable.
Baserow tables can now be shared publicly via a link which can be used to view, sort, filter and search a grid view. To do so click the new
Share view button found at the top of a grid view. Publicly shared views don’t show filtered out rows and hidden fields keeping your data secure. Viewers can apply their own temporary personal filters, sorts and searches. Finally publicly shared grid views get real time updates just like normal grid views so any viewers will see changes in real time.
Using a Gallery View you can view your rows as individual cards spread across the page instead of rows. Your cards can have an optional cover image shown by selecting a file field as the cover field under
In the past few months we’ve slowly been making it possible to translate Baserow to different languages. This is now finished and we’ve added French as the first available translation. More languages are coming soon. After signing in, you can click in the top left corner to open your account settings where you can change the interface language.
Quickly store and view ratings with the new Rating field. They can be configured to have different styles, colors and maximum scores. Additionally ratings fields can be referenced in formulas where they turn into their numeric representation where you can do more complicated calculations like calculating an average rating.
Video, Audio, PDF and some types of Office files stored in a Baserow file field can now be previewed directly in your Browser without having to download and update it. Also PDFs and various office files can be previewed and shared directly with Google Docs. Simply click on a file fields cell to see previews for any contained files.
There is an optional one-off manual step for self hosters in this release, if you have existing uploaded images you wish to use as cover images in a Gallery or Kanban view please upgrade to 1.8 and then follow the instructions for your deployment type below.
