GrandNode 4.20 - Roadmap

Monday, April 9, 2018

The previous version of GrandNode was spectacular. We implemented features like auctions, bookings, product kits, we also added Docker support to our app.

The last thing is related with our whole process of improving GrandNode performance and usability. We know that the current way of upgrading and maintaining GrandNode was pretty difficult and it was time-consuming to complete full upgrade. As you know, Docker is a kind of virtual machine, it's an open-source project for automating the deployment of applications as portable, self-sufficient containers that can run in the cloud or on-premises.

It was something new for us, but as we see now, it was crucial for efficient administration and deployment. It was good move for us, because since release, GrandNode has almost 2k pulls on Docker Hub. We were testing this feature on the DigitalOcean cloud and the process of deployment, installation and upgrade can take about 2-3 minutes. It's pretty fast.

We created also new types of products. In the 4.10 version you are able to create auction products. The whole process is described on our blog here:

Booking products, it's also described on our blog here:

Product kits - it's simple product type, you can create a bundle pack of items such as. Playstation kit and it has independent products like console, gamepad, 3 different games. Each product kit has its own price and can be discounted independently from base prices of items.

What can you expect in GrandNode 4.20?

- Knowledge base implemented as a standard feature - it can be used to create a FAQ or simple documentation

- Improvements in the quality of admin panel code

- Update to Bootstrap 4.0 production version
