🪄💥 Custom widgets

Product updates

Packages and modules [beta]

Packages and Modules are designed to allow you to reuse queries and JS logic, simplifying maintenance across your Appsmith apps. Packages and Modules are currently in beta in the Business and Enterprise editions. Upgrade to the Business edition if you want to use them in your applications.

Workflows [beta]

Automate business processes, enabling Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) and backend systems interactions, as well as integration with external services. Workflows are currently in beta for the Business and Enterprise editions. If you want to start automating your critical business processes, sign up for the beta program.

Shifting auto-layout to maintenance mode

In anticipation of the rollout of our next-generation UI Builder, we are transitioning auto-layout to maintenance mode starting on April 15th. Auto-layout apps will continue to function as before, but you will no longer be able to create new auto-layout apps by converting apps from fixed layouts. You can still fork existing auto-layout apps or create new fixed-layout apps.
