Balkan.rb was a beautiful, authentic experience

The Avo team visited the Balkan.rb conference together. We stayed at a cool AirBnB, where we had some brainstorming talks about Avo's future and some hacking sessions, where we worked on a few things that were on our minds but hadn't had the time to pick up.

Next up

We have a few things cooking up that we know you'll love.

Gabriel is working on giving Avo full support for alternative IDs. Avo already supports all (tested) ID obfuscation gems like friendly_id, prefixed_id, hashids, and more to obfuscate/change the URL param, but this change will ensure that the id is not being leaked in other forms or DOM helpers.

Gabriel also started the dashboard-wide filters feature, which will enable you to add global filters/ranges that will influence all your cards.

Alex is a friend, not a member, but he participated in last week's hackathon and built the calendar view to complement the table, grid, and map views. You'll be able to visualize your records on a nice calendar layout and configure a few things. It'll still be in alpha, but it will give you a good sense of what's coming.

Paul has been quick to refactor a few things and make the dynamic filters configurable. Yes, you heard that right. Fully configurable dynamic filters 🤯.
You'll be able to configure the label, conditions, type, icon, and (you've guessed it), query.
This is extremely powerful, and we have heard you need this.

I've been a bit unavailable in the development area in the past two to three months, but I'm still eager to do some coding.
I started to add cover and profile photo support to the record show page. This started as a "two-hour time-boxed feature", but ended up eating so much more of my time as I'd like to make it a bit more extensible.

I started working on the second iteration of the dynamic fields. While brainstorming with Paul and Gabriel we figured out that the initial approach was not "perfect" and had quite a few flaws.
We're trying a new approach, so stick around to see where we get with this.

We also spoke a bit about the audit logs. Another feature that we thought it was going to take us "a few weeks" to get done but ended up blowing up with the possibilities.
I know the audited and papertrail gems are great, and we use them in this implementation, but you should wait to see how powerful Avo becomes with this enabled 🚀


Of course, the big news is that we are joining TinySeed's Spring 2024 batch. We wrote a few words about that on our blog, so please give that a read, but the gist is that the most desired bootstrap investment fund and accelerator program invested in Avo and will help us grow to the next level 💪

Big news, significant changes shipped, and more to come.

We can't thank you enough for believing in Avo ❤️

Thanks for being awesome!

Adrian, Paul, and Gabriel
