October 17, 2023

Props usage tracking

Omlet now lists all the props defined in components and displays the usage of each prop in the component instances. You can list the usages for a specific variable by clicking on it or all the usages using the "List usages" button.

Export source map configuration

If you have imports from external packages or your design system library is used in your application repositories as an external dependency, you can define the exports property to tell the CLI where the entry points of a package correspond in the source code. Such as:

.omletrc.js
{
  "exports": {
    ".": "src/index.ts"
  }
}

You can check the Config file documentation to learn more about the exports property.

Updated dashboard

Omlet comes with an updated dashboard that helps you answer common design system use cases

  • How is our design system used overall?

  • How can I increase design system adoption?

  • How can I simplify the code library?

Performance improvements

A snappier experience using Omlet's Web app. Expect to see more improvements in the future.

Custom tag deprecated

Omlet previously automatically tagged components as "Custom" if they were not tagged as part of the design system or component library, which also did not have any child dependencies. This has been removed to reduce confusion and provide users full control over how components are tagged.

September 13, 2023

Import resolution

Omlet has improved its ability to deduplicate components by resolving component imports across packages. Next up, we'll further improve this through Node.js package entry points.

Alias configuration file

Omlet can now read aliases you have setup in TSConfig files or your bundler to resolve imports. Simply map your aliases in a configuration file. Find out more in our docs.

Updated docs site

We have migrated to a new docs site and added a few sections to address frequently asked questions likeโ€ฆ

  • How components and their dependencies are detected

  • A detailed comparison on Omlet and React Scanner

  • An expanded section security

styled-components support

Omlet has expanded support for styled-components.

Faster CLI scans

Omlet CLI scan time has been reduced by optimizing how it collects date related information for components.
