We're excited to present you the latest release of Syntropy Stack and its SDK. Over the past month, our team has focused on a number of new features and "fit and finish" improvements to help you best utilize our tools in your projects. You will notice that we completely redesigned the graphs and added new views, making your network management more straightforward. We also eliminated grouping into networks and introduced a single flat network approach, which triggered a breaking change requiring you to update the SDK package to the latest version. More about it - below.
As we progress our technology and grow the ecosystem, we listen closely to our community to integrate the tools and building blocks that actually matter, and we hope this update improves your Syntropy Stack experience. If you have any feedback or ideas, let's talk on Discord.
- Eliminated Grouping Into Networks
To make things simpler, we eliminated grouping into networks and introduced a single flat network approach. Now, all of your endpoints live in one place and are easily visible using the new graphs. This will allow for better management, reduce unwanted side effects and increase the visibility of the network as a whole.
- New Agent Token Scopes
We added this feature in preparation for an upcoming update which will allow users to set up rules to create connections automatically using scopes. The idea is that you’ll be able to connect nodes automatically by tagging them with these scopes.
- New Quick Node Search
It is now easier to search and find your nodes. We added a handy search bar, which will help you find any node almost instantly, even if you have thousands of them on different cloud providers.
Graphs & Analytics
- New Graph View
Meet the new graph view, where managing large networks just got significantly easier (or more enjoyable at least). From this release, your networks will be presented in a much more usable and visually pleasant way, largely with the integration of the ReGraph library. We're going to re-iterate and improve in future releases, with new additional improvements to come.
- New Map View
Together with a graph update, we added an entirely new view - a map. We know that visually displaying the geolocation of your nodes can be quite helpful. It's a global world, after all. Now you can see your endpoints and corresponding connections neatly laid out on the map.
- New Code View
The code view also got a slight facelift. Fundamentally, it works the same way as before, and it is a great way to create boilerplates for NaC implementations. The code view allows you to automatically generate the YAML representation of your whole network, making it easier to automate your network orchestration. What is now different is how we look at networks as a whole (see "Eliminated Grouping Into Networks"), so expect to see all of your endpoints here.
- Eliminated grouping into networks requires users to update NaC
To make things simpler, we eliminated grouping into networks and introduced a single flat network approach. Now, all of your endpoints live in one place and are easily visible using the new graphs. This will allow for better management, reduce unwanted side effects and increase the visibility of the network as a whole. However, this requires you to update your SDK package to the latest version. You can use the following command:
sudo pip install syntropy-sdk --upgrade
