Luigi v1.21.0
Aleksandra Simeonova @Luigi on Apr 8, 2022

You can read about the new features in Luigi v1.21.0 in the release notes below.

Update to Fundamental Styles v0.20.0

With Luigi v.1.21 release, we updated to version 0.20.0 of Fundamental Styles. This included a small change in the columns attribute of our product switcher. You can set the number of columns to auto, which would result in 3 columns if the entities are less than or equal to 6, or 4 columns if not. You can find more information here.

Automatic navigation for modalPathParam

It is now possible to keep Luigi Core and Luigi Client navigation in sync for modals with a modalPathParam. This means that when the user navigates to a new URL inside a modal, the Luigi Core path changes as well. You can use the ClientSupportAngular library to use this feature with an Angular app.

More precise settings for modal size

Instead of only having three default sizes for a modal, the user can now specify an exact size in 'px', '%', 'rem', 'em', 'vh' or 'vw'. We introduced the modalSettings.width and modalSettings.height parameters for this purpose. You can find more information in the Luigi documentation.

Removal of experimental flag for web components

As of Luigi v.1.21.0, it is not required to include the experimental flag to enable web components. You can find more information here.

keepURL in PageNotFoundHandler

A new parameter keepURL for the PageNotFoundHandler function allows you to change the main URL behavior in case of a "Page Not Found" error. You can now define to keep the erroneous URL in the browsers address bar (e.g. to correct a typo). An example configuration would look like this:

           routing: {
                        useHashRouting: true,
                        pageNotFoundHandler: (path, anyMatch) => {
                          return {
                            redirectTo: '/error',
                            keepURL: true

Luigi Core navigate function returns promise

The navigate function in Luigi returns a promise, which makes it easier to perform actions after changing the route. You can find more information here.

New getNavFooterContainer function

In Luigi v.1.21, we added a new function which allows you to get the footer container. It looks like this:

Url anchor support for micro frontends

Two new functions were introduced in the Luigi Client API: getAnchor() and setAnchor(). They allow the micro frontend to read and write the anchor part of the main URL to leverage in-page navigation such as scrolling. For example, if your URL is, the function LuigiClient.getAnchor() would return a string myAnchor. You can find more information here.
