How to upgrade RedwoodJS to v0.19.0

:point_right: IMPORTANT: Skipping versions when upgrading is not recommended and will likely cause problems. Do read through all Release Notes between your current version and this latest version. Each minor release will likely require you to implement breaking change fixes and apply manual code modifications.

Manual Code Modifications

  1. In the last few releases, we let you know that db should not be passed createGraphQLHandler . We’ve now removed that. You should instead disconnect from Prisma in onException in the file api/src/functions/graphql.js :
  2. Drop support for IE 11 by updating Browserslist targets in web/package.json :
  3. Improve VS Code debugging by adding .vscode/launch.json :

Upgrade Packages

Run the following command within your App directory:

yarn rw upgrade

To run the upgrade command, your project must be using v0.6.0 or greater. See this forum topic for manual upgrade instructions and general upgrade help.
