V0.7.0 with Redwood Auth is now available! 🥳

This release introduces the new :tada: Redwood Auth Package :tada:, which is a lightweight wrapper around popular SPA authentication libraries. Current support includes Netlify Identity Widget, Auth0, and Netlify GoTrue-JS. (With more on the way!) And it wouldn’t be done the Redwood Way if it didn’t include a generator to handle the boilerplate for you. We hope you find it delightful to use!

Getting Started with Redwood Auth


Example App Implementations

CLI Trailblazing

  • Feeling :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:? Just dive in with yarn rw g auth [netlify|auth0]

Other v0.7.0 Highlights :rocket:

  • New Function generator and Custom Function Cookbook guide
  • New Scaffold generator option to add ‘path/’ structure via yarn rw g scaffold <path/model> #423
  • New Form fields (too many to list!) and improvements to Redwood Forms
  • Upgrades Prisma to v2.0.0-beta.5 (release notes for beta.4 and beta.5)

Breaking :warning:

For previously deployed applications, it is possible the new Prisma migration files from beta.5 are incompatible with previous migrations. If you encounter a migration error on deployment, follow these steps after you backup your deployment DB:

  1. Remove your local Prisma “migrations/” directory and files.
  2. Create a new migration via yarn rw db save
  3. Drop the “_Migrations” table on your deployment DB
  4. If you are using the netlify-plugin-prisma-provider, make sure it is at v0.3.0

Rerun your deployment, which should complete successfully.
