React JS and Next JS are two of the most popular JS libraries and frameworks, and we know how much developers like them (we do too <3) so it goes without saying that we would want to make it as simple as possible for developers to deploy their react and next projects on Valist, which is why we offer you two amazing developer-friendly ways to do so: Using CLI or Github Actions

Bug Fixes
Bugs are inevitable and we at Valist are no stranger to that. However, we strongly believe that bugs will only motivate you to work harder to make your product the best it can be! This week we found not-so-critical but important-to-fix bugs on our app. We wanted to share some of them and their fixes with you all!
  1. Fixing deeply nested folder uploading in GitHub Actions We found out that the folder uploading using Github Actions was a total pain, especially when it came to nested folders with numerous files. To make sure, the experience for our users stays smooth we simplified the directory and file upload ✨
  2. Cleaning up dependencies We also worked on eliminating Valist’s unnecessary dependencies. This will speed up the app, resulting in a better user experience, faster uploads, and overall amazing performance.
  3. Fixed WalletConnect signing for certain wallets
  4. Some wallets were having issues with signing messages with WalletConnect + OpenGSN + WAGMI + RainbowKit, so we figured out a way to make them all work nicely together for even more wallets!
  5. Here’s how we did it: Pull Request #179
  6. Fixed Magic login in RainbowKit
  7. Magic login was temporarily broken due to versioning issues between libraries. With the latest RainbowKit and wagmi-magic-connector ****Magic email login is now working flawlessly next to your favorite wallet login options.
  8. Fixing intermittent issues where transaction notification did not disappear Earlier this week, one of our OG Valist members helped us identify this issue on the app where the transaction notification for project editing was not disappearing even after the transaction was successful. This issue was solved by rearranging some of the accounts and transaction functions in our codebase. Check it out: https://github.com/valist-io/valist-js/pull/175
  9. Fixing Markdown code highlighting on dark mode Another member from our discord shared this issue with us where the code highlighting on dark mode was not working. Something like this:
The fix for this was rather easy! 🚀 Sometimes smaller bugs can easily be missed, that’s why we love when the community jumps in <3 Thankful to everyone, who is helping us make Valist better.
