DataStation 0.6.0 released: adds in-app settings editor, smaller install size, and PHP scripting support
This release brings a smaller install size for the same functionality, an in-app settings editor, support for reading ODS and TSV files, and more bug fixes.
Release sizes shrunk 18-35%
The macOS zip is down to 261Mb from 318Mb, the Windows zip is down to 112Mb from 172Mb, and the Linux zip is down to 249Mb from 338. It is likely that it will continue to shrink as the last remaining pieces of the Node.js runner are ported to Go (particularly Snowflake evaluation).
Modify settings in-app
Before this release you had to edit a JSON file on disk to modify settings like Light Mode/Dark Mode. Now you can do that within the app. But you will need to restart the app for the changes to take effect. Settings are within the View desktop dropdown menu.
Scripting in PHP
Support for reading TSV and ODS file types
You can now load TSV (tab-separated values) and ODS (OpenOffice spreadsheets) into DataStation in the File and HTTP Panels.
- Querying ElasticSearch over TLS was broken, now it is fixed
- Sending headers in HTTP requests were broken since 0.5.0, now it is fixed
