This Month In Solid: SolidStart 0.6.0, Solid Docs Beta, and more 😎

Hello friends, as I've been thinking about my next blog post, I had what felt like a lightbulb moment. I thought: "What If I did a curated list of what happened in the SolidJS in the past month?" So I did!

The format

Inspired by Ryan Carniato This Week in JavaScript and SΓ©bastien Lorber This Week In React, I plan to publish, at the end of every month, a compilation of updates, posts and videos about the Solid world.

Each post will be split in the following way:

  • Solid Updates: updates from the core team, organization, or documentation.
  • Ecosystem Updates: updates from people building stuff for or with Solid.
  • Found online: videos, posts, and tweets about Solid and/or Solid-related topics.
  • Things to look out for: announced things related to Solid

The goal is to give you a monthly update about all things SolidJS. So, without further ado, let's dive into our first This Month in Solid.

Solid Updates

Let's start by reviewing what happened in the Solid World this month.

SolidStart 0.5.0 is out

v0.5.0 - Async Local Storage ...Everywhere

On the path toward the RC of 1.0 of SolidStart, here is a new release taking into consideration the learnings of the first month of Solid Start Beta 2.

Async Local Storage-based Helpers, HTTP Cacheable Server Functions, Proxied Web Response API, and an Improved Rust-based CLI are some of the things included in this release.

You can read more about it here:

Solid Start Beta 2: Month 2

SolidStart Beta 2: Month 2

This is a follow-up to the previous section. In this discussion, Ryan goes over the learnings since releasing 0.5.0 and the things that must be resolved before the 1.0 RC.
Some of the things included here are:

  • vite.config.ts is not the actual vite config
  • Vite 5 support
  • Granular HMR

You can read more about it here:

SolidStart 0.6.0 is out

As we were getting ready to wrap up the month, SolidStart 0.6.0 was released!

v0.6.0 - Take Flight

Following up on what was discussed in the Solid Start Beta 2: Month 2, this release adds Vite 5 support and more powerful configurations. It also counts with a feature that really showcases the power of server functions: Single Flight Mutations.

This release is super exciting! Why, you might ask? Well, as Ryan says at the end of the post: We are now feature complete for SolidStart 1.0

You can read more about it here:

New Beta Docs

As you might have understood from the tweet above, the Beta for the new Solid Docs is out. Built using SolidStart, the new docs have an entirely new look and updated content.

What's the fun thing about the docs being in beta? You can help us make them better. At the moment, there is an open feedback form where you can add all your suggestions, feedback, and requests regarding the new docs.

The DX team
