Deploy Options & Dev Tooling

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
