  • Altered angular.auth.basic.enable and angular.auth.oidc.enable options to angular.basicAuth.enable and angular.oidcAuth.enable respectively. This was needed for the upgrade transmutation. The old options are still active on Application but deprecated.

4.0.3 (2023-09-22)

  • Added transmutations:
    • Upgrade: Run on Application element. Creates for every DataElement with a angular.model or angular.view option, a MetaModel setup with a DataConnector and a DataConnector with DataView respectively. It creates FeatureModules based on packageName of the DataElement in question, e.g. org.normalizedsystems.users will become the FeatureModule users. If this contains a already existing predefined module name (core, shared, auth, translation) it takes the Application shortName.
    • AddDefaultAngularCrud: Run on DataElement. Creates a MetaModel setup with a DataConnector and a DataView. This is placed in the FeatureModule defined as described above.
  • Added validations:
    • <expansionResource name="net.democritus.angular:angularProjects-validation" version="4.0.3"/> can be added to enable the validations. This is also packaged in the stack.

  • Rejuvenation:
    • Expanders: 5.30.5 -> 5.32.0
    • Prime-core: 2023.5.3 -> 2023.5.4

3.1.4 (2023-06-23)

  • Added missing semicolon in basic AuthService.ts
  • [BUGFIX] Fixed contentProjection for mat-error and mat-hint in Dropdown, YesNoToggle and DatePicker.


Content-projection-identifiers have been changed to [matErrorContent] and [matHintContent], as the old identifiers [matErrors] and [matHint] do not represent the actual slot-function anymore.

Reasoning: Previous projection-slots did not behave like proper mat-errors and mat-hints. mat-error and mat-hint are forced to be a direct child of mat-form-field. But the old projetion just placed them inside the mat-form-field. Therefore, we have changed the setup such that the components use mat-error and mat-hint directly and have a contentSlot inside these elements, triggering the rename of the slots.

3.1.3 (2023-06-15)

  • Made frontend expand only possible again. Added base-components-model to dependencies.

3.1.2 (2023-06-13)

ERROR issuer  must use HTTPS (with TLS), or config value for property 'requireHttps' must be set to 'false' and allow HTTP (without TLS).

    mv /app/config/config.template.js /app/config/config.js
    • Ensure that projectName>docker>frontend>Dockerfile ends with the following:
    COPY /
