We're please to share with you the latest update to the Rappid library, full of the usual updates, fixes and cool new features you've come to expect. Take a look below for the main highlights as well as the full changelog.
Rappid 2.3 Highlights:
New format.Print plugin for custom diagrams or showing previews
The brand new format.Print plugin allows you to print the whole diagram or any custom rectangular area using the browser print dialog. Not only you can define the standard paper properties such as width, height, format, margins and orientation but you can also let Rappid automatically split the diagram into multiple sheets. All of that with a single function call!
Heavily improved Link tools, optimized link and shape performance
Link and element internals have been completely refactored, leading to a much higher performance, more flexibility in defining custom tools and elements, a better UX and user-friendly API. New built-in link tools allow manipulation of vertices, segments, anchors, arrowheads and boundaries.
Improvements and new API methods for UI, curves and geometries
Plenty of great new tutorials!
The Tutorials section has been completely updated including new tutorials for step-by-step creation of diagrams, such as: how to listen to events both on the UI layer (paper) and on the data model (graph) to run custom functions; definition of custom shapes and links; link labels and tools; and how to serialize/de-serialize your diagrams to/from JSON so that you can store it in your back-end.
