New website

We've launched our new website for Keystone 6! There’s a new home page, and background on why Keystone is built for projects that need to scale on their own terms. Navigating the docs is easier with breadcrumbs, index pages for Walkthroughs, Guides, and APIs, and a better mobile experience. We hope you like it ❤️

New guides

In our contuing efforts to improve the developer documentation for Keystone 6, we’ve written the following guides:

15th June 2021

New core

After months of work deep in the codebase, Keystone 6 now has a new core. This unblocks a bunch of roadmap features like custom field types, GraphQL Schema extensions, and more. The new core does bring some minor behavioural changes to Keystone’s APIs. See the release notes for more information.

Improved accessibility (a11y) in the Admin UI

We’ve made accessibility updates to DatePicker labels, relationship fields, as well as visual improvements to segment control (when no value is selected), and more.

15th June 2021

Unique Text and Integer field filtering

A long awaited feature: you can now find an item by unique fields in your schema. It works for text and integer fields that have isUnique: true set.

2nd June 2021

New JSON field

You can now use JSON blobs in your backend, and provide your own React UI components to edit them. Try it out in this example project. It accepts any valid JSON node including:

  • string
  • number
  • array
  • object

1st June 2021

Example projects collection

We now have a collection of example projects you can run locally to learn more about a particular feature of Keystone. Each project comes with explainers on the how and why. Use them as a reference for best practice, and as a jumping off point when adding features to your own Keystone project.

22nd May 2021

SQLite support with Prisma

You can now use SQLite to store data via Prisma. It includes support for the file and cloudinary field types, and lets you embed Keystone inside a Next.js frontend app.

6th April 2021

Controlled code demolition

We’ve pruned a lot of code to make way for a more efficient and productive core in Keystone 6. Changes include:

  • Removed DB adapters and many redundant methods and arguments (now that Keystone 6 uses Prisma under the hood).
  • Exchanged deploy, reset and generate commands for keystone-next prisma commands.
