Mobile Experience Updates

Users told us our mobile experience could be improved, so we’ve reworked it.

  • Top-right hamburger menu: Access all the pages in your Evidence project on mobile using the hamburger
  • Fewer bugs: We’ve introduced end-to-end tests which means we catch bugs before we release them!

Formatting & Image Support

-️ Format tags: covering a wide range of dates / times, many major currencies, numbers and percentages

  • Auto formats tags: which infer the number of decimal places and units (k, M, B) to display based on the input numbers
  • Custom formats: if you can’t find what you need in our standard tags, you can make any format supported by excel format strings eg ”$” ##0,000, “k”

Deploy Options & Dev Tooling


May 6, 2022

Making Evidence Easier

Users told us they wanted a simpler project structure and easier options to connect to their databases and deploy.

This release revamps the UI, strips back the project structure, adds UI options for connection and deployment. Read the PR in Github.

  • Simplified Evidence project structure - fewer confusing files cluttering your project directory
  • UI refresh - auto-generated sidebar nav, better errors and breadcrumbs
  • Slick database connections - now just use the settings menu in your Evidence project
  • Deploy straight from Evidence - get your Evidence project online from the settings menu
  • Updated, easier tutorial - a faster, funner start to using Evidence
