Client Transfers Are Live


​

Hey Slater Squad 👋
​
For Slater Roundup 23, we have:

  • Massive Slater Updates
  • Why Use Slater?
  • Thomas Carré Session

Alright - let's go!


Client Transfers & More

Thanks for all your feedback over the last few weeks. We've been busy making some updates based on your feedback!

We'll be doing a livestream this coming Wednesday, 10am EDT to go through these changes - a lot of updates here!

1) Transfers!

Give your clients control of their code and who has access to it. You can trigger the transfer to give your client control and still retain the ability to update code for as long as you need.

2) Add/remove collaborators from your team.

3) Public file urls are now fully public.

You don’t need to have an account to view code.

4) Cache busting support.

Add a version number to your Slater script anytime you need to ensure your users get your latest code.

5) Improved error handling.

This is most apparent when having issues saving your files to Production.

6) UI improvements.

7) Fixes and improvements to the Webflow Designer App

8) Improved the single script compilation.

We have improved the single script compilation. We are using Javascript import modules to solve issues that can occur with scope, error handling, and performance. This update is currently under the beta flag. Ask to get access to it.

We will be going through all these updates on Wednesday 10am EDT during a live session but we'll update you shortly on timings.

Come along on Wednesday 10am EDT to hear more


Why Use Slater?

A few days ago, someone messaged me this exact question.

People are clearly still unsure wtf Slater is and why it's a cheeky tool for any Webflower doing custom code.

So, Witt and I want to show you the following:

1) Why use custom code in Webflow?

2) Why use Slater?

3) How to use Slater


Thomas Carré Website

Thomas Carré is a creative developer that makes funkalicious websites (seriously - check out his portfolio here to see what I'm on about).
Anyway, he recently posted about an award nominated website he made with Webflow and Slater.

We'll be doing a live session this week on how he built this website and how he's using Slater generally.

TBC on timing but stay tuned on Twitter to see when the event will be!


That's all for this week folks!

See you soon,

Slater Team

We're back from a company-wide summer pause (or winter pause for our Southern Hemisphere team members). Edgar Allan is hitting it's numbers! Let's look at some new Community Library scripts: 👀 Dynamically loads HTML content based on a random number.

We're rolling into a holiday week in the US. If you need an animated American flag to celebrate, look no further. But! We have users from all over the world. For those outside of the US, try updating the code to make an animated flag of your country (hint: use AI). If you make one, please share. We'll get it added to the Community Library. 🇺🇸 Render and animate an American flag on a canvas with dynamic waving effects....

We're adding new community library scripts each week. Let's take a look at some of them. 👾 An interactive swarm Create a dynamic grid of squares that react to mouse movement, simulating a swarm-like effect (is it a swarm?). This code is the scaled back version of something we did for a client. We'll show you the finished experience once that projects launches. Play with the example: https://slater-original.webflow.io/swarm Review the code:...
