UI & Experience:

This week, the frontend team worked on fixing several bugs from the interface, which include:

  • Fixed site breadcrumbs to remove 304 redirect errors while navigating
  • The flow to accept an invite without having a Fleek account has been now implemented
  • When logged out and visiting the templates page, if the user logins it now redirects them this section after doing so
  • Added 150-character-max to Environment variables in sites
  • Removed the redeploy option from self-managed deployment sites
  • Fixed Go to Docs button typo after CLI login
  • Improved image caching and loading across the app
  • Fixed issue with Fleek logo glitching on Templates pages
  • Added extra information in the gateway for users to understand how to access their files
  • Added a 1GB per file/folder maximum size validation in storage UI
  • Fixed issue where a project’s GitHub app configurations persisted even when changing projects


While on the UI/user-facing front our updates end with the above, we have also been setting foundational work and improvements to the inner workings of, which prepare the platform for a couple of future releases:

  • The base for the site and project deletion features have been set, and integrations can begin next.
  • As well as the flow for community template submissions, with build settings validation, in preparation for integration of the feature to the frontend.

Coming Next Release
