Svelvet 5.0 — A Community Driven Update

The interactive node-based Svelte application diagramming tool Svelvet is doubling available features for users in version 5.0. The new features centered around expanding UI and improving UX, taking in feedback and suggestions from current users on which additions are most needed.

Svelvet 5.0, the Svelvet Rabbits upgrade, vastly expands and optimizes the user’s ability to interact with the Svelte diagram itself, often removing the requirement for diagram updates to be added solely through the codebase.

Main Upgrades:

All of the new features and how to implement them into your project have documentation available on the Svelvet documentation page:

  • Node Classes — Nodes can now have an added custom class property to allow for the user to style and customize nodes with the full scope of CSS properties.
  • Interactively Deletable Nodes — Nodes, and their corresponding edges, on the diagram are now able to be deleted interactively in two ways.
  • Interactive Node Linking & Creation — In response to popular demand, new nodes can be added, and existing nodes can be linked together with new edges interactively through the diagram with a quick and simple drag and drop click functionality.

With all of the newly added features to Svelvet, the 5.0 team was able to resolve 14 separate GitHub issues!

Other Upgrades:

The best part of all? All new features have been made optional, not required to the user! This decision was made to be able to give users the control that they want over their own applications and diagrams, as well as prevent any interference these new features may cause with diagrams made with previous versions of Svelvet.

Listening to users’ recommendations, suggestions, and feedback was a top priority for the Svelvet Rabbits upgrade. Have any more ideas that would improve Svelvet? Share your recommendations and contributions on the Svelvet GitHub page to help continue this rapid growth in UI and UE!
