Alpha SDK Released, Lisk SDK 2.2.0 Completed & UI Usability Tested
Last month was very important for us, as we achieved a significant milestone with the launch of our long-awaited Alpha SDK. Here are the main takeaways:
UI:Lisk Hub 1.19.0 and 1.19.1 released with support for Bitcoin (BTC) and a new design. We explain the implementation of Design Thinking in our UI/UX and describe a recent usability testing workshop. Lisk SDK Lisk SDK 2.1.0 was released on July 24, 2019
We published the Alpha SDK blog post explaining the details fully and next steps for feature releases. We have already started gathering your ideas on improving the developer experience for the Lisk SDK. If you want to share your feedback join us on Discord or open an issue on the lisk-sdk GitHub repository. If you have completed our Cashback tutorial, we would value your input via this short survey.Lisk SDK 2.2.0 will be released tomorrow, August 2
Development of Lisk SDK 2.2.0 is now complete, which means we will release this version tomorrow. Its main focus was technical debt reduction, benefitting experienced developers who want to modify the Lisk SDK themselves. The codebase is clearer and easier to understand.Previously there was no way to run module-specific database migrations (issue #3197), so we added this capability. Now database migrations can be registered and executed per module — allowing developers of custom modules to add their own bespoke database migrations. We removed many third-party dependencies, reducing the risk of malicious code hidden in dependencies and making both the build and installation process faster. We migrated the codebase to ES6 standard, replaced callbacks with async/await. Async/await allows asynchronous code to be read like synchronous/procedural code, so it’s easier to understand. Here is a nice article which highlights di...
