Bring Your Own Domain Names

Custom Domains You asked for it, and so it's here! We've just released Custom Domains, which lets you serve your Encore powered backend API's from your own domains. No proxy, no certificates, and no hassle!

The best part? No need to update your CLI tools, just head to the Web Platform and try it out yourself!

Check out the docs to learn more.

PR Environments just got even better

One of the lesser known — but very powerful — features of Encore just got even better!

In case you didn't know: When you've linked your app with GitHub, Encore will automatically provision dedicated Preview Environments for each pull request. (See how in the docs)

PR environments work just like regular development environments, and lets you test your changes before merging. This week, we made PR environments even better, and added full support for Encore's native Cron Jobs!

Improvements & Bugfixes

  • We've added support for GitHub login to make things even smoother.
  • We upgraded the platform to Go 1.17.8, and are standing ready for the release of 1.18.

— Thanks to @MaxDanielsson, @VilhelmMelkstam, and @gmlewis for giving us feedback!
