Here at Electric, we are thrilled to have published version 0.7 of ElectricSQL, which includes the new migration proxy and extended type support. This release lays the groundwork for many of the new features we are currently working on, and which will be available in future versions.
Included in the newly released version 0.7 of ElectricSQL is support for the Ionic Framework and Capacitor, enabling a developer to build natively installable apps using the Electric sync layer. We have built a demo app to show off this capability.
Last Thursday, the Electric team was excited to host the first Local-first Software London meet-up. It was a really successful evening, and it was brilliant to meet so many people from the Local-first movement in person, many of whom had travelled to London for the React Advanced conference on Friday.
Recently at Electric we’ve been building some demo apps; this is both to demonstrate the capability and use of Electric as platform, and to help inform our design process. The first of these demos is what we’re calling “Linearlite” - a simplified, lightweight clone of the Linear project management and issue tracking tool.
We're thrilled to introduce you to the newest addition to our team, Sam Willis! With a passion for product building, a knack for problem-solving, and a drive to innovate, Sam is joining us as a Founding Engineer.
Local-first software is the future. It's the natural evolution of state-transfer. It enables a modern, realtime multi-user experience, with built in offline support, resilience, privacy and data ownership. You get instant reactivity and a network-free interaction path. Plus it's much cheaper to operate and scale.
As we begin the new year, we’re thrilled to share the exciting news that José Valim, the creator of Elixir has joined Electric as an angel investor, and that world-class distributed systems expert Kevin De Porre and seasoned startup engineering veteran Garry Hill have joined Electric as founding engineers.
