  • v4.0-rc1 Changes

    December 15, 2019

    cState v4.0 brings many important changes to help you get more from your status page.

    🚀 The final stable release will be out before 2020.

    Thank you to the people who keep using cState and have starred it. It feels good to know that I have made something that helps people.

    Development began on: May 1, 2019
    🚀 Release date: December 15th, 2019
    🚀 Stars at time of release: 418

    ⬆️ > ❗ ATTENTION REQUIRED. This version brings many major changes that require changes to your configuration file and more. Please read the migration guide and changelog before upgrading.

    🔄 Changelog

    ➕ Added categories (#8)

    Fun fact: the original issue created Jul 7, 2018.

    1. Every system/component needs a category:

      systems: - name: Gatewaycategory: North Coast - name: Backup Gatewaycategory: Uncategorized

    You can set categories to be collapsed (closed) when the user visits the status page. You can also create a catchall category for components that should not be nested under a category.

    categories: - name: North Coastdescription: The worst one. Or the best one.closed: true - name: East Coast - name: Uncategorizeduntitled: true
    

    You need to have at least one category. Take a look at the example — you can add an Uncategorized category and hide that.

    Simply copy paste:

    params: categories: - name: Uncategorizeduntitled: true
    

    and add category: Uncategorized to every system/component.

    🔧 You can now use any color, not just HEX colors, in the configuration file (#83)

    Netlify CMS does not correctly interpret certain color values (most shockingly the defaults). To fix this bug, HEX codes now need the # in front in the config.yml file. You can also use other color types, like rgb(), but if you care about airtight browser support, keep using HEX codes or web safe colors.

    ➕ Added read-only API (#27)

    This feature is enabled out of the box for new websites with the new config.yml file. If you want to enable this feature, look at the migration guide.

    ⚡️ The API will get better with further updates.

    📚 Documentation:
    https://github.com/cstate/cstate/wiki/API

    Informational posts

    You could always make pages with cState, pages that would not show up in the incident history.

    v4 allows you to make pages that can show up in the incident history but are similar to basic pages.

    Informational pages need a title, date, and a boolean of informational: true.

    Design: Auto dark mode (#87)

    image

    Thank you to @microsockss for the help with this.

    ✅ If your OS and browser support dark / night mode, specifically prefers-color-scheme, cState will automatically enable a dark UI. This has been tested on:

    • 🏁 Windows 10 — Chrome
    • iOS 13 — Safari
    • Android 9 (Samsung Galaxy S10) — Android (with certain flags)

    0️⃣ By default the .Params.disableDarkMode boolean is set it to false.

    Dark mode uses built-in hard coded colors to ensure contrast and legibility.

    ⚡️ If you use custom CSS, please test this behavior before pushing to production. This feature is enabled automatically when you update.

    Design: Show years in incident history (#43)

    You can opt-in to this new layout with the .Site.Params.enableYearlyIncidentHistory boolean in config.yml. There is no pagination with this system but you can link to years like this: https://cstate.mnts.lt/#2019

    ⚡️ This is a good option for status pages that do not get updated often.

  • v4.0-dev1 Changes

    October 06, 2019

    Biggest changes

    • Categories which require that you change your config
    • ➕ Added API. To enable it, you must add this to your config.yml file:

      outputs: page: - html - jsonsection: - html - json - rsshome: - html - json - rss

    • Incident history can now be sorted by year or month

    • Other small changes that streamline cState even more

    Also

    As the community of cState grows, the more guilt I feel for not putting out version 4.0 (despite it being solid enough and needing just that extra push).

  • v3.1.1 Changes

    April 19, 2019

    264 stars. Wee. Here is some nice stuff.

    🔄 Changelog

  • v3.1.0 Changes

    April 08, 2019

    🚀 originally planned this for v4.0, but on 2nd thought, there are some little changes that would be useful in a x.1 release.

    🔄 Changelog

    UX & Accessibility

    • 👍 Better 404 messages - #51
    • Announcement box now shows what components are affected
    • You can now add pages in Netlify CMS #44
    • To show this off, an “Example Page” is now in the example repo

    • 0️⃣ Compliant AA rated accessible colors by default (mostly - origin from #52)
    • Services that are affected by downtime will now be highlighted in bold
    • 🔍 meta[description] in the head should now work properly, fixing the empty description tags from earlier versions (also better for SEO!)
    • Arrow separating between 2 issues on announcement box

    Languages

    • ➕ Added French 🇫🇷 Thanks to @pmdlt!
    • ➕ Added German 🇩🇪 Thanks to @gruselhaus!
    • ➕ Added Turkish 🇹🇷 Thanks to @0xbkt!

    Miscellenaous changes

    🛠 Thanks a ton to @pauby for many of the bug reports, fixes here:

    🏗 ResolvedWhen is no longer required to build a site for unresolved issues (#64)

    Resolved boolean now works as expected on Netlify CMS (#66)

    0️⃣ Email templates with correct URLs for Netlify CMS included. By default, though, they are not used. But the JavaScript redirect for them works again (#62)

    👀 Made index.html more extensible - see #42 - thanks @luto!

    No more “italics on the whole page” page because of an unclosed em tag

    Plus some little refining to borders on the homepage

    Name now goes first on copyright

    📚 Minor code/documentation cleanup

  • v3.0 Changes

    January 24, 2019

    This is a _ big _ release — once again thank you to everyone who supports the project. Before upgrading, of course, make a copy, especially if you don’t use Git, of your existing status page in case issues arise. You can just revert back on Netlify to a previous deploy if you so wish.

    🚀 Delayed for 3 months, originally planned for release in October (for Hacktoberfest 2018). But it’s finally here! There are now almost 200 stars for the project (from some really awesome developers, too)! Still unbelievable to me.

    👀 👁 Have you seen the cState quick setup guide on the Netllify Blog? It’s what got the project mildly popular in the first place!

    Migration

    The minimum Hugo version is now 0.48. A new version of Go brings variable overwrites, which may be used in parts of cState in the future.

    ⚡️ 1. Update cState like normal.

    1. Make sure your baseURL is NOT A SLASH IN A PRODUCTION. Moving forward, if the baseURL is not properly defined, RSS and other functionality may not be supported, as well as cause unexpected behavior.
    2. Add some values to your config.yml file to enable new functionality and ensure compatability:

    ➕ Add defaultContentLanguage & preserveTaxonomyNames to the very bottom of the config file as well as a taxonomies object:

    defaultContentLanguage: enpreserveTaxonomyNames: truetaxonomies: affected: affected
    

    🔄 Changelog

    cState is more powerful than ever — now with:

    image

    • Redesigned issues. Resolved issues in the history view are now much more condensed, letting you see more than 1 issue on a single page. The focus is put on the time it took to resolve the issue, calling
    • Fully implemented settings in Netlify CMS (#18). Up until this point, Netlify CMS was only used for posting incidents. Now you can even edit the configuration files with it!

    image

    • ⚡️ Updated, more consistent look & CSS. Moved some stuff around, added more comments, now using BEM in more places, removed unnecessary code. Other minor changes to sizing and colors.
    • Made RSS feeds even more discoverable, added links to the footer (#35). Community contributed idea. Thanks, @SamWhited!
    • 👍 RSS feeds now include more content, better in line with other status page feeds. An example of this is Reddit’s status page Atom feed, which was used as a somewhat starting point to improve the current RSS feeds in cState.
    • Issues now include the date when the incident had been resolved. Just hover over the “Resolved in…” text on the issue page.
    • 🔖 Versions will now be shown in console and generator tags. In previous versions, the version numbers would either be thrown around everywhere or just wrong.
    • You will now be automatically redirected to the Netlify CMS page when cState detects access_token in the URL. This was a confusing UX pattern, since you’d often be redirected to the homepage (for example, after using SSO login like Google’s) without any error message and the token waiting to be used in the URL.
    • Localization. (#12) Introducing defaultContentLanguage! English & Lithuanian translations are available right out of the box. Speaking of which — why don’t you help us translate cState?
    • Customizable date formatting. (#19) If you have Params.dateFormat in your config file, you can change how dates look in places like issue templates. If you’re upgrading from v2 and don’t care about the date formatting, the default will be kept as is.
    • 👀 See what was down (#25). Thanks to @avelino for the suggestion! This also brings about the ability to view a component’s entire incident history, like from a tag.
    • 404 the right way. Turns out 2.0 didn’t even have a 404 page. Now it has one. Here’s what it looks like.
    • Made RSS feeds discoverable (#34). Community contributed idea. Thanks, @SamWhited!
