Rivet 0.5.0 release
Rivet 0.5.0 is now available. This release adds a lot of new components and improves existing ones.
0.5.0 brings a handful of pretty significant changes that will require updating some markup in a few places mainly isolated to the header. We’ve update the documentation to reflect all of the new additions and created a guide to help you update from any of the pre-0.5.0 versions.
Here’s a list of the new components we’ve added for this release.
We’ve also spent some time improving existing components.
- Visual updates to buttons, form inputs, and icons
- Redesigned inline form validation errors and messaging
- Responsive header sizing
init()methods now accept a context DOM element within which to initialize components
Thanks to some of the folks piloting Rivet we’ve found a few bugs that have also been fixed.
- Alerts dynamically added to the DOM after
init()has run will now dismiss correctly
- Improved accessibility of header components
Modal.open()not opening a modal
- Increased color contrast on some button states to meet WCAG 2.0
- Improved accessibility on dropdowns
- Focus-trapping in modals works correctly when there is only one focusable element
- DOM queries moved in to
init()methods to allow components to be re-initialized
- The background of the drawer will now extend to the bottom of the browser when the contents of the drawer are longer than the viewport
As we mentioned above this will be the last release before we move to 1.0.0. We’ll make any necessary changes based on feedback and testing as well as some documentation improvements, but any updates between now and 1.0.0 should be additive, non-breaking changes. The migration guide below outlines all the updates and includes code examples that will help you make the necessary updates.View the guide
