🕵 In Staging - Spying All New Features in Glide

:male_detective: That’s the topic for all of you spies, sniffer dogs, that are always attentive to everything that the glide launches to test on our Glide’s insiders instance, called Staging

The Insiders instance is only for testing. Don’t build production apps there. Glide might break or even delete them.

Here’s what I found today

That’s also awesome!

in Staging - Create an app directly from a Glide Table! :star_struck:

Also,

Now we can know how many images & files we’re uploading directly in the app

This addition is absolutely awesome.

Would love an option to duplicate a Google Sheets tab as a Glide Table.

It would help me update all the templates I have published and improve performance.

Not sure what “Construct URL” is…but it looks useful!

Oh…I get it.

Like a fancy template column. Wondering what the advantages are here over a template column? The fact that it’s automatically formatted as a link?

I see some in-app UTM and tag builder/tracking capabilities with this…nevermind ref_URL’s…

Good eye and yet another cool feature Glide team! :ok_hand:

Makes sense.

But couldn’t this be done with the template column?

yeah, you can build links with the Template column…but like Robert said, I think the difference is in the ability to change the URL Protocol, Path, and formatting (HTTP/HTTPS). I could be wrong…always a possibility haha

I’m REALLY hoping for an “encode” column type that can encode in % escape, base64, and md5 hash

You’re correct…parameters are URL encoded! Glide continues to impress!!!

Sometimes, when crafting URLs, parameters need to be URL encoded

eg.
Not this:

But this:

Now all we need is base64 and we’re off to the races!!!
