0.386 (07 May 2024)

07 May, 2024

These changes have been released with version 0.386 of the CLI.

The Decimal type

Keel now supports decimal numbers! This is useful for cases in which you need to store fractional values. For example, the currency value of some store item could be defined as Decimal.

model Product {
  fields {
    name Text
    salePrice Decimal
    stockCount Number

Capturing user info from 3rd party providers

When authenticating with ID Token or Single Sign-On authentication, we now capture additional user info from the 3rd party provider (provided that they are available) and store them in Identity. This data will also be updated every time the user authenticates.

The new fields on Identity are name, familyName, givenName, middleName, nickName, profile, picture, website, gender, zoneInfo and locale.

This provides a lot more context for who the Identity represents, which means you don't necessarily need to request this from the user.

model User {
  fields {
    username Text
    name Text
    email Text
    identity Identity @unique
  actions {
    create newUser() with (username) {
      // Associate this new user with the currently authenticated Identity
      @set(user.identity = ctx.identity)
      // Capture the name and email from the Identity
      @set(user.name = ctx.identity.name)
      @set(user.email = ctx.identity.email)
      // The user must be authenticated to perform this action
      @permission(expression: ctx.isAuthenticated)

Local PostgreSQL upgrade

The CLI has been upgraded to use v16 of PostgreSQL. This does mean that your local data will not be immediately available to your apps running on the updated CLI.

However, the data is not deleted. If you downgrade your version of Keel, the data will be made available again to your app. If you would like to migrate this data, then this will need to be done manually by moving the data from the keel-pg-volume Docker volume to the keel-pg-volume-16 volume. Let us know if you need help with this.

Fixes and Improvements

We've also released some other fixes and improvements (opens in a new tab) to the CLI and runtime.

Thank you for using Keel!
