Minor release

v2.15.0 - Branding and automated JS and Tailwind CSS assets installation

I found AVO and decided to give it a try with my team. Some days later I was in love with it, but still testing it to be sure every small detail of our business will be covered. Weeks later we cannot stop developing in AVO.

Easy PRs & RFCs

We've got about 8 good first issues for you to pick up if you want to stretch that brain. https://avohq.io/good-first-issues

We published two RFCs asking you guys for feedback on ideas we had. Expose REST API endpoints from Avo resources and Use native Avo components to build custom content

Community spotlight

I was away last week but I feel that the repo was a busy bee swarm. Iain, Desmond, Louis, and Paul have been at it fixing bugs and delivering features. What an amazing community! Thank you for all your help!

Next up

We'll still have a few things to finish up and merge from last week so we'll get on them. Things like attaching the model to an action resource that will enable you to use belongs to and other dynamic fields on actions, skip the show view, custom policies, action_policy support, and more.

Wroclove.rb and How To Web

I'm going to speak at Wroclove.rb this weekend (Sept. 15-18) about how to package a Rails engine. I'd love to meet you if you're around. I'll have stickers and pins for everyone.

We're also going to have a booth at How To Web (Sept. 21-22) so come check us out if you're around.

Thank you

I just want to say that I'm humbled that we made such an amazing community. Thank you for your support, feedback, ideas, and contributions ❤️

Adrian and Paul 🤙
