Luigi v1.5.0
Aleksandra Simeonova @Luigi on Oct 28, 2020

Luigi 1.5 is here, and it offers useful new features as well as many improvements to old ones. You can now implement intent-based navigation in Luigi, and we've also added some new methods to our API. To see the full list of changes, read more below.

Intent-based navigation

Luigi Client now allows you to navigate through micro frontends by using an intent-based navigation. This type of navigation decouples navigation triggers from the actual navigation targets. Rather than directly encoding the name of the target app into the URL fragment, app developers can provide a navigation intent such as display or edit. You can find an example of how to use it in our documentation.

New Core API functions

The Luigi Core Auth API was improved by the addition of two new login and logout functions. They allow you to login or logout a user dynamically. You can read more about them on the Luigi Core API page.

Accordion effect in categories

This new feature allows a category in Luigi navigation to act as an accordion - when the user clicks another category, the previously expanded category is collapsed and the new one is expanded. This feature can be used by configuring the sideNavAccordionMode parameter. Read more in our navigation parameters reference.

A new disableInputHandlers parameter was added to the global search configuration. It disables internal handlers (for example on:keyUp) on the search input field. Read more about it here.
