New Features

taipy-gui 3.0.0

  • A new package holds the Page Builder API: a set of classes that let you define the pages for your application entirely with Python.
  • You can now update variables on all clients using the shared variables concept. See the Gui.add_shared_variable() and State.dispatch() methods for details.

  • The slider control can now handle several knobs, allowing for range selection.
    Please check the example for more information.
  • The file_download control now lets developers generate the file content dynamically, at download time.
    Please check the example for more information.

taipy-core 3.0.0

taipy-template 3.0.0

  • A new template named "scenario-management" is available. For more information on creating a new Taipy application with the new "scenario-management" template, refer to the documentation page on templates.

Improvements and changes

taipy-gui 3.0.0

  • ⚠ The action parameter of the on_action callback was removed for every control.
    The signature of all on_action() callback functions are now unified to the following:
    • state (State): the state of the client invoking that callback;
    • id (str): the identifier of the visual element that triggers that callback;
    • payload (dict): a dictionary that provides additional information to the callback.
      This dictionary now has the additional action key that is set to the action name. This change not only impact the on_action callback of all controls that support it, but in an exactly similar manner the following callback signatures:
      • on_range_change in the chart control;
      • on_edit, on_add, and on_delete in the table control;
      • on_close in the pane block.
  • The navigate() function has an additional parameter params that is used to add query parameters to the requested URL. The query parameters can be retrieved in the on_navigate callback.
  • The on_action parameter of the download() function can be a function and not just a function name.
  • Setting the debug parameter of Gui.run() to True provides stack traces to be shown in the console when exceptions occur in user code.

taipy-core 3.0.0

  • ⚠ A ScenarioConfig graph is now created directly from TaskConfig and DataNodeConfig. Consequently, PipelineConfig has been removed. For more information, refer to Configure a scenario.
  • ⚠ The Pipeline object has been removed and replaced by Sequence. A sequence is held by a Scenario and represents a subset of its tasks than can be submitted together independently of the other tasks of the scenario. For more information, refer to Scenario.add_sequence() and Scenario.remove_sequence().
  • Scope.PIPELINE has been removed from possible Scope values.
  • The root_folder, storage_folder, read_entity_retry, repository_type, and repository_properties attributes of the GlobalAppConfig have been moved to the CoreSection.
    Please refer to the Core configuration page for details.
  • The clean_entities attribute has been removed from the CoreSection. Correspondingly, the --clean-entities option has been removed from the version management CLI.
    To clean entities of a version, please run your application in development mode, or delete your version with the --delete CLI option. For more information, refer to Taipy command-line interface
  • The deprecated nb_of_workers attribute of the JobConfig has been removed.
  • The deprecated parent_id attribute of a DataNode, Task, Pipeline, or Scenario entity, has been removed.
  • The deprecated last_edition_date and edition_in_progress attributes of a DataNode entity have been removed.
  • The deprecated DataNode.lock_edition() and DataNode.unlock_edition() methods have been removed.
  • The deprecated taipy.create_pipeline() method has been removed.
  • Function DataNode.track_edit has been made public.

taipy-template 3.0.0

  • The default template also supports creating a multi-pages application with Core and Rest services. These options are available when creating a new application from the template.
  • The "multi-page-gui" template has been removed. Please use the default instead to create a Taipy multi-pages application.
