A new version of CARTO for React has been released with the following main highlights:

  • Support for parameterized queries. Now, a user can define queries that allow for external parameters to be injected into the query and create more powerful dynamic queries without having to modify the SQL; this, will result in filtering being applied from the backend side to the sources and will be reflected in layers and widgets. For more information, a guide has been included in our documentation and can be accessed here.
  • Several bug fixes.

CARTO for React 1.3

developer tools

We are excited to announce a new release of our CARTO for React library, packed with awesome new features to extend the CARTO platform and provide more capabilities for building custom solutions:

  • We have added support for spatial indexes, so now you can visualize layers and add widgets when you are working with datasets using H3 and Quadbin indexes, in addition to traditional geometries. This is specially useful when you are dealing with large datasets.
  • We have support now for dynamic tiling. By default the CartoLayer will work with dynamic tiles and the widgets have been updated to work with them.
  • Widgets now have two different modes: viewport and global.
  • The GeocoderWidget now is compatible with the new LDS API.
  • We have a new BarWidget to display categorical/qualitative data using vertical bars.

CARTO for deck.gl 8.8

new
developer tools

We are really happy to announce a new release of “CARTO for deck.gl” to allow developers to build even more awesome apps and map visualizations with the CARTO platform. This new release comes from:

  • Support in the CartoLayer for datasets using spatial indexes such as H3 and Quadbin. You can now build visualizations with very large datasets without the need of geometry data at an incredible performance and reduced costs.
  • You can now leverage our Dynamic Tiling system with SQL Queries, providing great scaling capabilities to your maps.
  • deck.gl code base is now migrated to TypeScript. This improves the robustness and maintainability of TypeScript apps using deck.gl as well as the deck.gl codebase itself.
